Workplace Injuries Involving Nurses and Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs)
Lifting Injuries | Patient Handling Injuries | Needle Sticks | Repetitive Stress or Overexertion | Slips and Falls | Patient or Other Violence
It may come as a surprise to others, but most nurses know this—nursing is one of the most injury prone occupations in the world. Whether you’re a nurse or a certified nursing assistant (CNA), there are many ways you can suffer an injury. Many of the more serious injuries are suffered while engaged in patient handling—trying to lift a patient from a gurney to a bed, steadying a patient during a procedure or simply keeping a patient immobile. Needle sticks are always a risk, as are slips and falls, as water and other fluids are common in hospitals and medical facilities.
