Workers who are required to move patients face the risk of lifting injuries. Bodily fluids and other substances left on hospital floors can cause slip-and-fall accidents. EMTs can get into a car crash while on their way to help someone. Many health workers face the risk of repetitive strain injuries. Their jobs also carry unique health risks, including:
- Needle sticks
- Lifting and transferring patients
- Exposure to infectious diseases
- Assault by uncooperative patients
- Cuts from sharp instruments
Attorney Paul McAndrew knows the impact an injury can have on healthcare workers. Suddenly, they are the ones in need of medical treatment, and their medical expenses can add up quickly. And because of their injury, they may be unable to work, resulting in lost income. Many face a tough financial situation and struggle to get by during this difficult time.
