Managing workers' compensation exposures in healthcare



Managing workers' compensation exposures in healthcare



Journal of Healthcare Risk Management 18(3): 28-36



Employees in healthcare are exposed to numerous and varied risks that pose the threat of injury.

This article presents a suggested outline for a written risk management plan for workers' compensation exposures.
