Abstract: Abstract: Workers are exposed daily to work accidents in itinere (WA in itinere) due to different factors, also constituting a problem of difficult control for organizations. Objective: to determine the socio-labor and economic impact derived from the WA in Itinere in the health staff of an Ecuadorian hospital, during the 2017-2018 period. Materials and Methods: Exploratory study, of transversal cut, carried out from the registry of the WA in itinere reported in a Hospital located in Quito during the study period. Results: 12 AT in itinere, in nursing assistants, women between the ages of 25 and 54, with a working age of 1 to 3 years, with musculoskeletal disorders being the main diagnosis reported, which led to 219 days of absenteeism reaching a total cost of $ 10,027.65 for medical care and / or rehabilitation. Conclusion: It is considered that there is underreporting of WA in itinere in hospital staff. A door is opened for new epidemiological work at different levels of health care, and this study can also be replicated in other organizations, where the social and human impact caused by this type of accident was evaluated
Description: Resumen: Los trabajadores se encuentran expuestos diariamente a sufrir accidentes de trabajo in itinere (AT in itinere) debido a diferentes factores, constituyendo además un problema de difícil control para las organizaciones. Objetivo: determinar el impacto socio-laboral y económico derivado de los AT in Itinere en el personal de salud de un Hospital del Ecuador, durante el período 2017- 2018. Materiales y Métodos: Estudio exploratorio, de corte trasversal, realizado a partir del registro de los AT in itinere reportados en un Hospital de Quito durante el periodo de estudio. Resultados: 12 AT in itinere, en auxiliares de enfermería mujeres en edades comprendidas de 25 a 54 años, con antigüedad laboral de 1 a 3 años, siendo los trastornos musculo-esqueléticos el principal diagnóstico reportado, lo cual originó 219 días de ausentismo laboral alcanzando un costo total de $ 10.027,65 para atención médica y/o rehabilitación. Conclusión: Se considera exista subregistro de reportes de AT in itinere en el personal hospitalario. Se abre puerta para nuevos trabajos epidemiológicos en los diferentes niveles de atención de salud, pudiendo además replicarse este estudio en otras organizaciones, donde se evalué el impacto social y humano que ocasiona este tipo de accidentes.
