Nurses face serious risks on overnight shifts

Hospitals need nurses to work around the clock. This isn't a job that is limited only to Monday through Friday during the day. Unfortunately, many of the overnight shifts that hospitals need covered are handled by newer nurses. Even though patients will likely get excellent care, the nurses are at an increased risk of suffering from injuries.

The risk of violence in a home health care setting

Home health care aides provide a valuable service for people who have health challenges but don't want to have to move into an assisted living facility. These individuals might rely on home health care aides to take care of tasks like helping with personal hygiene, taking medications or monitoring vital signs.

Patient care techs, nurses and others all face serious risks

Patients in hospitals, rehabilitation centers and nursing homes count on nurses and patient care technicians to meet their needs. Sometimes, these medical professionals have to lift patients, help them move around and handle heavy items. All of these duties and others inherent to these jobs pose a risk of injury to the workers.

Back injuries should be treated as serious matters

Back injuries are very serious matters, regardless of the cause. When you think about how much you use your back on a daily basis, it is easy to see how debilitating one of these injuries can be. The course of action you take depends on the type of injury you suffered, so you should get medical care to come up with a plan.

Sought emergency care? That's workers' comp's bill

You tripped and fell at work, but you didn't think much of it at the time. Yes, you hit your head, and you felt a little dizzy, but you thought it would pass. Hours later, you go home and find your family pointing out that you aren't acting like yourself. They tell you to go to the emergency room after hearing about your workplace accident.

Losing a finger or two can be very traumatic

Think about how much you rely on your fingers to do daily tasks. Things like texting, holding a fork and driving your vehicle would be much more difficult or even impossible without fingers. Even though the thought might not be pleasant, think about what life would be like if you lost a finger or two.
