Types of Injuries Health Workers May Suffer
Health workers must deal with sick, injured, and disabled people on a daily basis. While employers are responsible to provide adequate safety training and equipment, you are still at risk for injuries and diseases.
Injuries that health workers may suffer include, but are not limited to:
- Broken bones
- Bruises and lacerations
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Back injuries
- Neck injuries
- Shoulder injuries
Repetitive strain injuries are very common among health workers. You may have to lift heavy patients on a daily basis, or do cooking, cleaning, and other tasks for disabled patients. This could lead to back strain, muscle or ligament sprains, and other repetitive stress injuries. If your work duties cause your injuries, you have the right to file a workers’ compensation claim.
In addition, you may contract a disease from working with sick patients. These include normal colds and flus, as well as more serious viral infections and respiratory diseases. In California, workers’ compensation coverage extends to employees who have suffered occupational illnesses. You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and other illness-related expenses.
