Understanding Hospital Workplace Injuries

Approximately 294,000 nonfatal hospital workplace injuries and illnesses were reported in 2014. Furthermore, studies show that hospitals have some of the most hazardous working environments in the United States. Hospital workers must lift and transfer patients, serve mentally handicapped or potentially violent patients, and treat sick and contagious patients every day. In addition, hospital workers must handle a variety of sharp tools and devices, such as syringes, on a daily basis. These factors increase the risk of an occupational injury or disease.

Common hospital workplace injuries include:

  • Muscle sprains and strains
  • Punctures or cuts
  • Bone fractures
  • Soreness and bruises

Occupational injuries in hospitals are often caused by overexertion, handling violent patients, exposure to harmful substances and sharp object, and slip and falls. While workplace injuries commonly affect hospital workers, illnesses also take a toll. Common diseases include respiratory conditions, skin disorders, and other viruses and bacterial infections contracted from patients.

Workplace injuries can occur to anyone working in a hospital environment, including surgical hospitals, general medical hospitals, psychiatric hospitals, specialty hospitals, and substance abuse hospitals. Whether you are a physician, registered nurse, lab technician, nursing aid, or other practitioner, you can pursue compensation for an injury or disease you sustained from your workplace. Depending on the situation, you may be able to seek medical benefits, wage benefits, and disability benefits.
