Did You Get Hurt Trying To Move A Patient — Or In Some Other Way?

Back injuries often occur to health care workers when trying to move patients or help them in the bathroom. This is a huge problem across the country, resulting in many injured nurses.

Injuries to health care workers can also happen in many other ways that give rise to a work comp claim. This includes getting poked with a needle or being assaulted by an unruly patient.

It is lifting injuries, however, that are most common. Hospitals often claim that injuries won't happen if only you lift with the right ergonomic approach. That is just not true. Cutting-edge research is increasingly showing that back injuries are often unavoidable when trying to meet the demands of handling patients.
