Objective:

To evaluate the relationship between the quality of life of health personnel and absenteeism in a hospital in Chile. Methods: Cross-sectional study. The population corresponds to health person nel of the Hospital of Nueva Imperial. The instrument of Quality of Professional Life (CVP-35) was applied and demographic character istics, employment conditions and absenteeism indexes for medical licenses were collected. A logistic model was developed to identify which factors are associated with absenteeism. A zero-inflated nega tive binomial model to evaluate factors associated with the fre quency of medical licenses and the number of days generated. The models were adjusted by sex and age, and the dimensions of the CVP-35.

Results:

The response rate of CVP-35 was 63.6%. 67.4% were women with a mean age of 39.1 years. Of the 352 workers, 149 were absent from medical leave. The median on absentee days is 15 days. Presenting a lot or a lot of workload increases the chance of being absent, OR 1.29 95% CI (1.01-1.64)”. Age is a factor that is associated with the three absenteeism indices evaluated, increasing their results. Discussion and Conclusions: There is a relationship between the quality of life of health personnel and absenteeism. Absenteeism at work is a clear symptom of problems in the manage ment of human resources within an organization.
