Opis

This website provides information (and a short film) about several interventions in the healthcare industry. Healthcare workers make diagnoses and prognoses all day long, but it isn’t always easy for them to recognize signs and symptoms of injury in themselves. Although hospitals and other healthcare facilities are clean, sterile, and safe, workers in hospitals, nursing homes, and long-term care facilities have the highest work-related injury and illness rates in the country.
