||The study covered 180 persons taking care of children at nurseries and Mother-and-Child Homes (MCH). Burnout is a consequence of unsurmounted prolonged occupational stress characterized by a growing sense of professional exhaustion, indifference to the ones under one's care, decreased reliance on one's own professional skills and loss of motivation for work. These symptoms were assessed with the Maslach Burn-Out Inventory. Clearly manifested symptoms were noted in 30% of the subjects. The prevalence was higher in MCHs. Burn-out in attending personnel carries a risk for the general development of children, which increases the need to recognize the problem and define responsibilities for prevention.
