Ergonomics in healthcare is still in its infancy. The responsibilities of healthcare personnel include taking care of the health of the whole population. That is why it is very important to care about healthcare personnel. This article is a presentation of a survey conducted in Slovakia. The survey focused on nurses who work directly at their patients' beds. The objective of the survey was to verify the physical load of nursing profession and to determine the most frequently musculoskeletal disorders of nurses. The survey was conducted in the form of the Nordic Questionnaire. The results of the survey confirmed the most serious difficulties for nurses with the musculoskeletal apparatus. The results also showed pain-related dependence in one body part of a nursing professional depending on his or her profile. However, the analyses included in this article can be applied to any company management, not only nurses.(original abstract)
