Occupationally Acquired Illness and Infection
Hospital workers are exposed to a number of risks, including slip-and-fall accidents, and repetitive stress injuries. But one of the most dangerous aspects of working in a hospital is the risk of contracting disease.
If you are nurse, doctor, nursing assistant or other hospital worker who has contracted a disease while working in a hospital, you may need to take time off to recover. If you have a serious illness, you may even need permanent disability. Regardless of your situation, it is important to know and protect your right to workers' compensation benefits.
