Background &Objectives: Iran has been one of the countries hardest hit by the health crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic of this disease has put considerable physical and emotional on frontline healthcare workers that can impair the quality of services provided to patients. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the effect of caring for COVID 19 patients on productivity and burnout of nurses. Materials & Methods: The present study is a descriptive-analytical cross-sectional study that was conducted in 1399 in Farhikhtegan Hospital in Tehran. 120 nurses with at least six months of experience, no use of psychotropic drugs in the past year and no managerial position were selected by available sampling method. Data was collected using the Maslach Burnout Questionnaire and Hersey and Goldsmith Human Resources Productivity Questionnaire and they were analyzed using descriptive statistics, one-way analysis of variance, Pearson correlation test, and independent t-test and SPSS version 22. Results: productivity in nurses caring for COVID 19 patients (61.11± 9.7) was less than productivity of other nurses (79.7± 7.7) and Job burnout in nurses caring for COVID 19 patients (66.07± 13.13) was more than Job burnout of other nurses (45.7± 11.07). There was meaningful difference in nurses' productivity in caring conditions for COVID19 patients. There was meaningful inverse relationship between burnout and employee productivity (r = -0.58) and (P < 0.001). Conclusion: Caring for COVID 19 patients reduces the productivity and increases the burnout of nurses. Managers need to adopt the supportive, encouragement, and training interventions to increase the productivity and job burnout of nurses in health crisis.
