Nurses File Workers Compensation Claims in Colorado

Are you a nurse who’s been hurt on the job?

Were you trained in proper lifting techniques?

Did your workplace utilize a safe patient handling program?

According to OSHA, “Nearly half (48 percent) of injuries resulting in days away from work are caused by exertion, such as lifting, bending or reaching. These motions often relate to patient handling.” It’s critical to receive medical attention if you’re in a lot of pain after lifting patients all day. You can make your injury a lot worse if you don’t treat your pain properly.

Did you know your hospital can address the biggest cause of workplace injuries by implementing a program to promote safe lifting, repositioning, and transfer of patients? 

These programs include: 
  • Utilizing ceiling-mounted lifts 
  • Minimal-lift policies 
  • Patient assessment tools 
  • Training all caregivers and dedicated lifting teams on proper use of equipment
