Work Injuries in the Health Care Field


Learn how to minimize injuries in the health care field as well as how to handle an injury if one should occur.

Many hospitals and health care providers have locations in multiple states. Each state has its own approach for employers when dealing with claims filed by their employees. Some states have very unique handling of multiple aspects of workers' compensation claims. One of the most prominent features is that some states have enacted legislation for handling of COVID-19 claims by creating a 'rebuttable presumption' on employers for 'essential employees,' which include those employed in the health care and nursing industry.
This topic will help those responsible for providing workers' compensation benefits in the health care and nursing industry. While every claim should be viewed on a case-by-case basis, this material will explore the methodical litigation process applied throughout various states workers' compensation statutes. This information will assist risk management and claims professionals with understanding how to analyze, evaluate, and ultimately attempt to resolve claims in a manner which reduces exposure for employers in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible.
