OCCUPATIONAL INJURIES AMONG WORKERS IN US HEALTH CARE


OCCUPATIONAL INJURIES IN US HEALTH CARE IMAGE

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.
