Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the insomnia severity of healthcare workers in Turkish society during the COVID-19 epidemic according to demographic data, working conditions and other variables.

Materials and Methods: This study was carried out in Turkey, a total of 277 medical employees, including 107 men and 170 women providing active service in various health centers. Healthcare workers were asked to fill in the personal information form and the Insomnia Severity Index (ISI) to determine the insomnia level. The prepared questionnaires were applied online to healthcare workers who agreed to participate in the study. Mann-Whitney U ve Kruskal Wallis test were used in the statistical analysis of the data. The significance level was accepted as P<0.05 in these analyzes.

Results: The average age of women was 33.70±7.86, the average age of men was 36.41±9.34. The ISI level was found higher in single healthcare workers (P<0.05). The ISI level was found higher in women, those who had high school education, and the younger age group, but this difference was not significant (P>0.05). The level of ISI was higher in secretaries and those working in the field of radiology, smokers and people with chronic diseases, but this difference is not significant (P>0.05).

Conclusion: As a result of the psychological effects of healthcare workers, the ISI level was detected higher. Regular psychoeducation may be helpful for healthcare workers to be less psychologically affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
