Nurses, Hospital Staff, and Health Care Worker Injuries

Nurses, hospital staff and health care workers are at surprisingly high risk of injury while working. Injuries commonly result from lifting patients or overextension while attempting to move or lift a patient to a bed, operating table, lift or mat. Because of continuing staffing shortages at hospitals, the increased duties and responsibilities of nurses, hospital staff and health care workers mean more frequent and heavier lifting during each shift. Injuries can also occur from lifting and handling medical equipment. Further work-related injuries can result from assisting patients to the bathroom and lifting patients and heavy boxes.

Types of Injuries

Back and neck injuries sustained by nurses, hospital staff and health care workers can result in damage to spinal discs resulting in a budging disc, herniated disc or ruptured disc. Hospital workers are also subject to slip and fall injuries and injuries caused by assaults from combative patients.
