Nursing Can Be Dangerous

You rush to get linens for a new patient. You prepare breakfast for five more, help another one to the restroom, check blood pressure and vital signs for three additional patients, untangle someone’s oxygen tubing, and then race to the cafeteria for a 10-minute lunch break.

Sound familiar? If you are a nurse, it probably does. Nursing is a difficult, fast-paced profession and many nurses spend most of their time in high gear. It is not surprising that workplace accidents happen, and they can sometimes be serious. At Nicolet Law Office, S.C., our lawyers ensure that nurses get the support and benefits they deserve after workplace injuries. We have been helping nurses in Wisconsin for years, including helping them file an appeal after they were denied benefits. Sometimes, even caretakers need to be taken care of.

We always offer free consultations.

Common Accidents In Nursing

The physically demanding nature of the nursing profession can lead to a variety of injuries, whether cumulative or resulting from a single incident. Some common scenarios include:

  • Repetitive Stress Injuries
    Nurses lift heavy loads frequently, which can eventually result in neck, shoulder and arm problems.
  • Workplace Violence
    Patients and their families experience a great deal of stress, which means that nurses are at an elevated risk for violent encounters.
  • Patient Assistance And Transfer
    Physically assisting patients move around their rooms can result in accidents.
  • Needle Sticks
    Despite proper precautions, getting stuck with a needle is a risk that constantly hovers around medical professionals. Depending on the nature of the incident, these can be incredibly serious.
