Abstract

During the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare workers have important roles in clinical management. In carrying out this clinical management, a higher rate of depression also occurs in healthcare workers. The high level of depression in healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic might be caused by an increase in workload, fear of being infected, violence and exclusion. This study aims to describe the phenomenon of depression in healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. This research was conducted in April 2021 involving 419 healthcare workers, which were medical and non-medical personnels. In addition to collecting demographic data, participants also filled out an online questionnaire that measure depression using the Beck Depression Inventory-II, which was adapted into Indonesian language. The results showed that 16.5% of healthcare workers experienced symptoms of depression. Significantly higher rates of depression were experienced by healthcare workers who are under 30 years old, divorced, do not reside with their family and have non-medical professions.
