As the COVID-19 virus continues to wreak havoc around the world, our fragile healthcare system is one of the most affected by it, putting the Philippine’s healthcare workers’ level of confidence to the test. The goal of this study is to determine the level of confidence of the healthcare workers working in selected hospitals in the province of Cavite, Philippines, and analyze how different factors contribute to it. An online survey questionnaire with a 5-point Likert scale and 7 categories ranging from 4-9 questions each was utilized to determine the level of agreement of 40 healthcare workers. Results found that the overall factors mentioned are deemed impactful on the level of confidence of healthcare workers, with a mean average of 4.23. In order to determine the sociodemographic factors affecting confidence level, Fisher’s Exact Test and Chi-Square were used. As a result, the healthcare workers’ level of confidence and their sociodemographic profiles showed no significant relationship, with all of its p-values being more than .05. It is also found that there is a significant relationship on their (2.a) Overall knowledge, (2.b) Skills and abilities, and (3) Hospital COVID-19 census, working environment, occupational stress, and government support, making hospital COVID-19 census the most impactful, with a mean average of 3.68. Overall, the researchers propose that healthcare workers continue extending their knowledge and improving their skills and talents in providing patient care to boost confidence while also ensuring that they take care of their own wellbeing.
