About hospital accidents

As with any workplace, there are risks present if you are employed in a hospital. Work-related injuries can affect you whether you are a nurse, doctor, porter, cleaner or any other member of staff. Health and safety guidelines are in place and hard work is carried out by the NHS to improve standards of safety and training for staff, but unfortunately not all accidents can be prevented.

Staff errors can lead to injuries while the general day-to-day working in a hospital itself may cause others. As with any other employer, hospital management has a duty of care to ensure that you are safe whilst at work, and if they fail to keep you safe, you can claim compensation.

Common causes of hospital injuries

Generally, hospitals are safe environments, but accidents do happen. Fluids that leak or spill onto the floor put you at risk of slipping or falling, while heavy medical equipment like trolleys can cause injuries if they are moved around carelessly.

The presence of infectious diseases and dangerous medical equipment, such as hypodermic needles, presents a further risk to you when working in a hospital. Failure to keep the hospital cleaned to a high standard also greatly increases the risk of diseases spreading.

In some rare cases, hospital staff can become infected if the correct health and safety protocol is not in place. Inadequate training can also lead to accidents involving needles, electronic equipment and sharp objects.
