This article presents research involving the comparison of levels of occupational stress across multiple units of a large teaching hospital. Using a scale designed to measure a four-component model of occupational stress in medical environments, the results indicated that a significant amount of the variation in this measure was accounted for by the unit on which the respondent worked. There were no significant differences across levels of employment (e.g., housestaff, nurse clinician, registered nurse, licensed practical nurse, clerk).
