Objective The aims of this study were to report the variation in work-related stressor (WRS) and musculoskeletal disorder (MSD) complaints across three major hospitals in the northern part of Jordan and to examine the correlations between stressors, MSD complaints, and stress symptoms using a questionnaire. Methods A qualified radiographer distributed a questionnaire in the radiology department at three hospitals, including a governmental public hospital (GH), a university educational hospital (UH), and a private hospital (PH). The questionnaire included demographic, WRS, management and responsibility stressors, stress symptoms, stress relievers, and MSD complaints sections. A total of 74 radiographers (GH = 28, UH = 29, PH = 17) agreed to participate after signing a consent form. Results The average age ranged from 30.8 ± 3.3 to 33.6 ± 1.4 (P = .6), and the average experience ranged from 6.2 ± 2.5 to 8 ± 1.2 years (P = .7) in the hospitals. The number of men was higher than women only in the UH (ratio = 2.6). The number of diploma degree holders was higher than the number of bachelor’s degree holders only in the GH (ratio = 3). Stress symptoms such as depression and MSD complaints such as low back pain in the GH were significantly higher than the other hospitals. There was a significant correlation (Spearman correlation coefficient = 0.61, P = .04) between WRS and MSD complaints.
