Survey Finds Major Safety Concerns Among Healthcare Staff
Healthcare workers are worried about Covid-19, research shows
Jan. 5, 2021 /Healthcare Global/ — Less than 30 per cent of US healthcare workers feel safe going to work, according to a new survey.
The national survey by Infrared Cameras Inc (ICI), manufacturers of thermal cameras and infrared systems, also found that almost 40 percent of respondents think that their workplace is at risk for lawsuits due to lax safety measures. Nearly 20 percent reported they would consider suing their own employer if they contracted Covid-19 due to inadequate safety measures on the job.
Gary Strahan, CEO at ICI, commented on the findings: “As the number of Covid-19 cases are increasing again nationally and around the world, healthcare facilities need to rethink safety measures to ensure they’re doing everything they can to protect healthcare workers on the frontlines. Our survey found that, despite safety measures already in place, the majority of healthcare workers do not feel safe at work.”
