OCCUPATIONAL INJURIES AMONG WORKERS IN US HEALTH CARE

What makes hospitals such hazardous workplaces?
Unique risks: Hospital workers lift, reposition, and transfer patients who have limited mobility. Other unique risks include needlesticks and violence.  Unique culture:  Caregivers feel an ethical duty to “do no harm” to patients. Some will put their own safety and health at risk to help a patient.  They are not assembly lines: Employees must react to unpredictable events with split second decisions.  Learn more on the OSHA Website with Worker Safety in Your Hospital
