Public Citizen report documents injuries to nurses

A new Public Citizen report, “The Healthcare Industry’s Castoffs,” documents the nature and repercussions of injuries suffered by nurses. This report is the first in a five-part series spotlighting injuries to health care workers, potential methods to reduce these injuries, the policy positions of stakeholders and the implementation of solutions.

As Public Citizen reported in 2013, more health care and social assistance workers are forced to miss work due to injury than workers in any other profession.
