Introduction and purpose: nurses are under stress and fear due to exposure to infectious diseases and needle stick injuries. The present study was also conducted with the aim of investigating the effect of training emergency nurses' defense mechanisms in dealing with sharp objects and patients' secretions.
Materials and methods: The present study is a semi-experimental study with the emergency nurses, who randomly selected 90 people who were randomly divided into intervention and control groups. Defense mechanisms were taught to nurses in the intervention group by a consultant psychologist. The questionnaire of exposure to sharp objects and secretions of patients and perceived stress of nurses was completed by nurses before and after the intervention. The collected data were analyzed using spss software version 20 and using non-parametric chi-square and independent parametric t tests.
Result: 55.6% of nurses had a history of exposure. The average perceived stress score of nurses before and after training had a statistically significant difference (P<0.001).
Discussion and conclusion: The findings of the present study showed that the implementation of a training program on the perceived stress caused by exposure to sharp objects and patient secretions in nurses working in emergency departments was effective. Therefore, in order to reduce complications and manage exposure to sharp objects in healthcare systems, it is suggested to implement defense mechanisms training in helicopter training.
