Description
Nurses engaged in disaster support activities(DSA)were most likely adversely affected physically, mentally, and socially. This literature review was aimed to clarify nurses’ physical, mental, and social experiences during the engagement in DSA. The physical impact experienced by nurses included physical problems due to unattainable or poor environment for resting. The psychological impact included the mental burden experienced during interactive experiences of nurses with the victims having emotional effects. The social impact focused on the ensuing dilemma of prioritizing their job completion requirements and their familial obligations. In particular, increased stress heightened the effects of the DSA when victims were family members of nurses living in the disaster area and were engaged in DSA. Furthermore, nurses who were posted in disaster areas and engaged in disaster activities experienced incessant memories of the disaster thereby promoting consistent fear of remembering the adverse effects of disasters that required supportive activities.
