Workers’ Compensation Is For Health Care Workers, Too
Maybe you work at a hospital or a nursing home. You may be a registered nurse, an orderly or a personal care assistant. You are on the front lines of our country’s health care. And, it is not an easy job.
You spend your days lifting patients, running around with medicines and instruments and dealing with people at their very worst. Over time, this can lead to worn-out bodies and poor mental health. For many, these long-term injuries will mean you have to take time off, sometimes even stop working permanently.
Medical Professionals Are At High Risk
As a health care worker, your health is often at risk. On top of exposure to illness, the simple act of lifting and turning patients can cause back, neck and hip injuries. High demand and understaffing may mean you slip and fall or that you are cut on an implement. Patient handling can result in all kinds of injuries.
What is worse is that many of these injuries develop over time.
Regardless of how you got your injury, if you were hurt at work or through long-term work conditions, you are entitled to workers’ compensation.
