Standing Up For Injured Health Care Employees

Nurses, including those who work in hospitals, nursing homes and home health care workers, often provide critical but unappreciated medical assistance services that often involve substantial risk of injury. The most common injuries we see are the lifting injuries, primarily involving the low back, when patients are moved, or assisted during the course of care. Since many nursing facilities see themselves as capable of dispensing medical advice, nursing facilities are among the more difficult employers in terms of addressing an injured worker's fundamental needs after sustaining work related injury. Serious injury requires a specialist's care, and low back injuries in particular should not go untreated. Both worker and patient are placed at risk when a potentially serious injury is ignored. Call us for assistance in the event you have sustained injury during the course of your nursing care or home health care work.
