"Hospitals have high rates of nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses. On average, U.S. hospitals recorded 6.4 work-related injuries and illnesses for every 100 full-time employees in 2013, compared with 3.3 per 100 full-time employees for all U.S. industries combined. . . . Reducing injuries not only helps workers, but also will improve patient care and the bottom line." – Worker Safety in Hospitals, Occupational Safety and Health Administration
