Nurse Work Injury
Healthcare Workers Injured On the Job
Nurses and other healthcare professionals constantly put themselves at risk while working in the hospital or home medical setting. If you are a registered nurse, a licensed nurse assistant, a licensed practical nurse, or a home health care assistant and you have suffered a work-related injury or illness, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.
You can think of us as your care providers. Helping you secure workers’ compensation benefits is a crucial step toward your healing and future financial security.
Common Healthcare Worker Injuries
Just a few of the common injuries sustained by those in the healthcare industry include:
- Injury from lifting patients, repositioning patients, or catching unstable transfers
- Injury by a patient or co-worker
- Gradual onset of back, neck, shoulder, arm, or leg pain
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Exposure to disease or infection
Vocational Rehabilitation for Healthcare Workers
When you injure your back caring for others as a living, you may need to be retrained or change jobs. BFS makes sure you get the assistance you require before you go back to work.
If you cannot go back to patient care because your body is unable to be put in vulnerable positions, we make sure you get vocational rehabilitation (VR) services from a VR counselor. You are entitled to choose your VR provider and we make sure you are given a wide selection of options.
