Abstract:


Objective:

Healthcare workers are at high risk for musculoskeletal injuries. A program was developed to decrease the incidence of musculoskeletal injuries and the duration of associated time loss.

Methods:

A program combining primary prevention and on-site early intervention was implemented at a large, urban hospital. Incidence rates were compared using Poisson regression. Cox regression was used to analyze the time to return to regular duties.

Results:

Although there was no reduction in incidence, the program was effective in returning injured employees to work more promptly for registered nurses and health science professionals (therapists, technicians), although not for facility support staff.

Conclusions:

Overall savings in time loss and compensation payments were realized. However, better integration of prevention and follow-up efforts are needed, and greater attention to the sociopolitical environment is required to improve outcomes for facility support staff.
