SF Healthcare Workers Comp: Healthcare Hazards

SF Healthcare Workers Comp: Healthcare HazardsSF Healthcare Workers Comp: Healthcare Hazards

A recent survey indicated that the majority of Allied Healthcare workers enjoy their careers.  87% of individuals polled asserted that they would recommend healthcare to future workers, and 67% proclaimed a sense of fulfilled in their current occupation. Only 11% of workers polled expressed concerns about job security.

The healthcare industry offers an ever expanding workforce, financial stability and relative community member satisfaction, yet according to a recent study it can also be one of the most dangerous vocations. The Medical Staffing Network’s recent study found that the private healthcare industry alone contributed 621,100 illness and injury cases to the national total in 2012. As a result, 21% of national illness/ injury cases were from the private healthcare sector.

It stands to reason that the healthcare industry is more susceptible to illness and exposure to disease than most other industries, which arguably is an occupational hazard for the allied healthcare industry.  However many of the cases filed were injury claims. The most common workplace incidents reported were muscular strains, sprains and tears.

CA healthcare workers comp claims like these put strain on the private healthcare sector from struggling with staffing coverage to huge financial responsibilities should a healthcare worker suffer a work related ailments.  Proper workers compensation coverage is equally as vital to California healthcare as professional liability or cyber liability coverage.
