The study examines the occupational stress among 600 healthcare professionals (doctors, nurses and support staff) from the private hospitals of New Delhi, NCR using the Occupational Stress Index (Srivastava & Singh, 1981). Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) revealed statistically significant results on the dimensions of occupational stress among three occupational groups (doctors, nurses and support staff) with role overload contributing the most, whereas, the gender difference was not found statistically significant. Individuals can easily get away with the severe consequences of stress if the stress at work is addressed with proper interventions.

The study examines the occupational stress among 600 healthcare professionals (doctors, nurses and support staff) from the private hospitals of New Delhi, NCR using the Occupational Stress Index (Srivastava & Singh, 1981). Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) revealed statistically significant results on the dimensions of occupational stress among three occupational groups (doctors, nurses and support staff) with role overload contributing the most, whereas, the gender difference was not found statistically significant. Individuals can easily get away with the severe consequences of stress if the stress at work is addressed with proper interventions.
