Workers’ Compensation for Healthcare Workers

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, healthcare is the fastest growing sector of the U.S. economy, employing over 18 million workers. Unfortunately, a steady growth in the healthcare industry has coincided with ongoing workplace related injuries, fatalities, and illnesses. According to OSHA, hospitals are one of the most dangerous places to work.

Hazards on the Job

Healthcare workers are exposed to a number of hazards, including:

  • Infectious agents
  • Chemical hazards
  • Sharp and dangerous objects
  • Musculoskeletal disorders caused by frequent heavy manual lifting (lifting or transferring patients)
  • Increased risk of slip and fall injuries


Are all Healthcare Workers Covered?

Healthcare workers employed by for-profit and non-profit organizations are entitled to workers’ compensation coverage. Part-time workers and ‘borrowed/leased’ employees are also entitled to workers’ compensation coverage.

After a Workplace Injury

If you are injured on the job, or develop workplace related illness, notify your employer as soon as possible. Many seek the aid of a Workers’ Compensation attorney because filing and collecting Workers’ compensation is often a complicated process.
