Health Care Workers
Workers’ Compensation For Pennsylvania Health Care Employees
Nurses and CNAs, otherwise known as certified nursing assistants, are at an extremely high risk of getting hurt on the job. They are continually running up and down hallways and transporting patients. Anything from a dangerous or aggravated patient, to a slippery un-marked surface can cause serious problems. A standard medical device that has a bad reputation for injuring nurses during use is a Hoyer Lift. A Hoyer Lift is used in transporting patients from beds to wheelchairs or operating tables. This device can cause injuries to both the patient and nurse if improperly used.
Other health works such as doctors, phlebotomists, physical therapists and other medical professionals are also faced with a variety of hazards in the workplace. Sometimes, these risks can cause a severe injury. When health care workers get hurt during their job, they have the right to pursue workers’ compensation. The Pennsylvania law firm of Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo is here to help these workers see that their rights are observed.
