Nurses And Other Health Care Workers Sometimes Suffer Serious Injuries On The Job
People often enter health care professions, such as nursing and physical therapy, with the hope and intention of helping others. They often approach their jobs from a caring, altruistic perspective. Along with the caregiving, however, there can be a great deal of physically demanding work for nurses, certified nursing assistants (CNAs), emergency room (ER) staff and other health care providers to cope with.
Unfortunately, workplace injuries are common for nurses and other health care workers because of challenging activities such as:
- Frequent walking all day long
- Lifting or turning patients
- Rushing from one patient to another, pressed for time and under stress from many directions
- Working around needles, sophisticated equipment and hazardous materials
