Background and Objective: Despite the adverse effects of workplace stress on the physical- mental health of individuals and organizational productivity, this important issue has rarely been addressed in the country. With this background in mind, the present research was conducted to investigate the effects of stress on work ability, the work-related accident rate, and the performance of Takhte-Jamshid Hospital in Karaj.
Materials and Methods: In the current study, work stress was considered the dependent variable, mediator variables included work ability index and work-related accidents, and hospital performance was regarded as the dependent variable.  The statistical population included the total number of 636 Takhte Jamshid Hospital employees out of which of 240 employees were selected as the study population based on Cochran formula. The data collection was performed using the standard questionnaires developed by Aguinis regarding work ability index, work stress, and employee work performance.
Results: Based on the obtained results, mean scores of work stress, work ability, and hospital performance were obtained as 3.06, 22.2, and 3, respectively. According to the structural equation modeling, work stress negatively affected both working ability (R2=-0.87) and work-related incidents (R2=0.68). Moreover, the results were indicative of the negative impact of work stress on the rate of work-related accidents (R2=-0.34). Furthermore, the rate of work-related accidents rate had an adverse effect on hospital performance (R2=-0.62).
Conclusion: Based on the results of the current study, it can be concluded that work stress exerts a significant effect on the reduction of employees' working ability and performance of the hospital. Therefore, it is expected that mitigation of work stress can lead to a lower rate of work-related accidents and higher quality of hospital performance
