The main objective of this study is to correlate the demographic and pandemic factors of health professionals in the development of Burnout Syndrome, under the context of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. This is a study resulting from field research, of a descriptive nature, as it allows the researcher to achieve a better understanding of the relationship between the factors that influence the fact studied; and a multi-pronged approach (quantitative and qualitative). Data collection took place between the months March and April of 2021, from the submission of a link for the participants to answer the questionnaire. The research was carried out in a private long-stay institution for the elderly, called Ashbury Nursing Home, located in Blackrock/Dublin. Data were tabulated and analyzed descriptively in the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) program, version 23.0, inferentially using Pearson's chi-square test and/or Fisher's exact test, and the level of accuracy was established significance in the statistical tests at 5% (p-value equals 0.05). The correlation of demographic variables and SARS-CoV-2 pandemic on Burnout Syndrome in its three-dimensionality, which is composed of emotional exhaustion, low personal fulfillment and depersonalization among health professionals. The correlations acquired between the immensities of the emotional exhaustion and the demographic factor and the COVID-19 pandemic denote the importance of variables between health professionals and their agents in the occurrence of episodes directly linked to mental health at work that directly influence the well-being and quality of life, unbalancing the biopsychosocial aspects.
