Employees who are nurses often suffer many job related injuries that go unreported. The job in itself is a tiresome one where you are on your feet all day long, bending to help patients, lifting those who are disabled, wheeling patients around, often getting pricked by needles and such.
But what happens when it is the nurse who needs care? Often times the people employed in this field are very compassionate towards others but in doing so neglect their own health needs. Nurses encounter many health hazards on a daily basis and if you are a nurse or know someone you should take full charge of your health when it comes to your job. If you have suffered even the slightest injury ALWAYS REPORT it to your employer and if its one that required medical attention such as physical therapy, doctor's visits , etc then you should consult a lawyer to determine the extent of your claims.
