Nurses who use right lifting techniques still can suffer injuries

As we discussed in last week's blog, nurses suffer back injuries at a rate that is much higher than any other occupation. These injuries are extremely debilitating and can mean a nurse is out of work for months or even years. Even with using proper lifting techniques, nurses can still suffer spine injuries requiring them to use workers' compensation insurance.

Nursing staff often suffer injuries

Nurses and other staff are often well-loved people that Denver residents encounter while in the hospital or other care facility. These employees work hard to make sure their patients are well cared for. But, health care workers are also injured on the job at a high rate, suffering from a workplace accident or other serious injury.

What might qualify a nurse for worker's comp?

To get worker’s compensation, an injured worker typically has to show that an injury occurred on the job and during the scope of normal work activities.

What is a 'notice of contest' in CO workers' compensation?

All kinds of workers can get injured on the job. While some occupations may be more inherently dangerous than others, just about every job presents some possibility for injury. For example, one industry that is often not thought of as being particularly dangerous is that of health care. However, the risks of contracting illness or being injured by a patient or equipment is much higher than many people realize. Of course, Denver workers of any type who have been injured do have one place they may be able to turn, and that is workers' compensation insurance.

Some alarming facts about drunk driving

Drunk driving is one of the leading causes of accidents across the United States. Thousands of families are affected by these tragedies each year. Drunk driving is completely preventable. When people make the decision to drive after they have been drinking, they risk their lives and the lives of everyone else they meet on the road.

Do you have post-traumatic stress disorder?

Many people assume post-traumatic stress syndrome is a condition that only occurs with veterans. However, this disorder also affects many nurses, paramedics, doctors and other health care professionals. Working in hospitals and clinical settings where there is much exposure to trauma and stress makes medical professionals more susceptible to developing PTSD than people in many other occupations.
