3 common types of repetitive strain injuries for nurses

Nurses and other professionals who work in health care face some of the biggest risks when it comes to workplace injuries. Despite efforts from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to reduce the number of health-care employees who get hurt on the job, many workers still get hurt in this industry every year.

While there are well-documented risks associated with certain inherently dangerous careers, you tend to hear less about the types of injuries and health issues that can arise when you work in an office environment. While office-related injuries are less well-publicized, they can still prove highly damaging, and they have the capacity to affect many aspects of your overall health and wellness.

Most common workplace injuries in the health care industry

Nurses and other health care professionals provide a valuable service to the people of Denver and people all over the country. However, this job is not without its risks. There are certain injuries people working in hospitals are more prone to receiving than others in the workforce.

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.

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.
