Nurse Injury and Hospital Staff Work Comp Cases
Nurses and Hospital Staff employees are at surprisingly high risk of injury in Missouri. These injuries commonly result from lifting patients or over-extension while attempting to move or lift a patient. These injures commonly occur while moving a patient to a bed, operating table, lift or mat. Because of the continuing staffing shortage at hospitals, the duties and responsibilities of Nurses and Hospital Staff means more frequent and heavier lifts during each shift. Injuries also occur from lifting and handling medical equipment. Further work-related injuries that we handle for Nurses and Hospital Staff include injuries caused by helping patients to the bathroom and lifting patients and heavy boxes.
