Common Types of Injuries Experienced by Health Care Workers

Health care workers face unique physical stress and strain as they lift and maneuver patients. Nurses and nurse assistants often complain of back, neck, shoulder, knee, foot and leg pain after years of moving patients around.

Sometimes a back injury occurs suddenly and the nurse or nurse assistant is aware of it. In other cases, a back ailment develops over time.

For the sake of a workers’ compensation claim, the date of the injury can be the date that it actually happened or the date that the worker became unable to work normally because of pain that had accumulated over months or years.

Other types of injuries on the job common among health care providers may include slip-and- fall accidents, needle prick accidents, noxious gas injuries, injuries resulting from assault by patients and stress disorders. Any injury occurring on the job that requires medical treatment or time off work should be evaluated by an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.
