The Hardships of Healthcare Work

Per the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, hospitals represent one of the most hazardous work environments in the United States. In fact, OSHA found that 6.8 injuries and illnesses occur for every 100 full-time medical employees. Hospital injury rates are higher than construction, a job sector that is frequently referenced as one of the most dangerous private industries in the United States. Additionally, hospitals see some of the highest rates of “days away” due to illness and other ailments. This means that healthcare professionals experience more stress during struggle to dedicate the time needed to recover from injuries obtained while working.

Leading Causes of Injury & Illness for Healthcare Workers

Healthcare workers are often required to lift patients who are unable to move on their own. This can cause injuries to the back, arms, neck, and more. As many patients are sick with bacterial and viral infections, healthcare workers are exposed to a multitude of contagious illness. Infection from being poked by a needle and being exposed to bodily fluids are common risks for healthcare workers. Additionally, as some patients are suffering from mental illness, they are prone to violent outbursts that place hospital workers in physical danger.

The following injuries frequently cause healthcare workers to miss days of work:

  • Sprains and Strains
  • Bruises
  • Soreness/Pain
  • Fractures
  • Multiple Trauma
  • Cuts and Punctures

More than half of all injuries causing missed workdays were from sprains and strains. These injuries add up to create a strain on the general well-being of those who are working to care for the nation’s injured, sick, and disabled.

Employers Must Protect Healthcare Workers

As the healthcare industry is rapidly growing, an increasing number of workers will face the dangers of their jobs. Long shifts strain the body and cause discomfort for many workers. Hospitals have inherent dangers that range from slips and falls to being stuck by a needle. Working in the medical field can be fast-paced, stressful, and dangerous.

Common injuries experienced by healthcare professionals include:

  • Joint, back, and foot problems from standing for long shifts
  • Injuries from the physicality required to lift and move patients
  • Illness from bacterial and virus infections
  • Fractures from slips and falls
  • Cuts and incisions
  • Exhaustion from long and stressful shifts
