Many serious kinds of injuries befall nurses, orderlies, attendants and caregivers in health care settings. Some arise from discrete events, others from long-term activities. These are just some of the more common types of hospital and nursing home injuries:
- Back injuries from lifting and handling patients
- Needlesticks containing other people’s blood
- Bacterial infection and viral illnesses from patients with contagious diseases
- Slip-and-fall injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive use injuries
Some of these injuries can lead to permanent total disability, bringing a rewarding career to a complete halt. Some result in permanent partial disability, requiring retraining. A few injuries, like being infected by a sick person’s blood, can lead to death.
