Keywords:Knowledge, Staff Nurse, Physical Therapist, Sim.
Nursing is a health care practitioner that focuses on comprehensive care of individuals, families and communities to find, maintain and attain optimal health and wellbeing. The purpose of being a nurse is to treat the sick, so it is surprising that nursing as a profession recognizes some of the highest rates of musculo-skeletal injury. Muscle bone damage can interfere with a nurse's work. There are many nurses who like direct patient care but are forced to leave nursing or leave the nursing practice they enjoy because of injury. Many injuries can be avoided by the competent use of appropriate physical equipment when physically engaged.
Material and Methods - Quantitative and qualitative descriptive survey research was used. 60% of hospital staff nurses were selected by sample selection method. Data collection of structured questionnaires was analyzed and analyzed using descriptive and univariate statistics.
Result - The total amount of information regarding the correct body mechanic is not as good as the 11.02 ± 4.96% of information and represents 36.72%. The finding is significant between the professional level of staff nurses in terms of body machine accuracy and age variability in age (7.178).
Conclusion - The number of staff nurses' knowledge depending on the various factors of the correct bodybuilder is poor in all aspects of the correct body mechanic.
