    • Abstract:
      The prevalence of occupational low-back pain was investigated in 407 female nurses in a large tertiary health care unit in Athens, Greece. Work-related back pain within the previous 2 weeks was reported by 63% of respondents and within the previous 6 months by 67%. Prevalence was higher (66% in the previous 2 weeks) in the wards with physically heavy duties than in the rest (52%, P = 0·003), but all grades of nursing staff were affected equally. The specific factors which claimed to be responsible for causing back pain included moving heavy items (36%), lifting patients onto trolleys (32%) or in bed (29%), helping patients out of bed (24%) and bending to lift objects from the floor (24%). Absence from work because of back pain in the previous 2 weeks was reported by 28% of the sample. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
