Most people know that getting behind the wheel after drinking alcohol or consuming drugs can lead to increased risk of a crash and that states have criminalized having too much alcohol in your body while driving. That includes New Jersey, where driving with a blood alcohol content at or above 0.08 percent constitutes a DWI offense.
People rely on the care and hard work of nurses, aides and other hospital workers when they are at their weakest and most vulnerable. Those who work in these stressful settings often sacrifice their own well-being for the care and comfort of their patients.
When people think about work injuries, they often imagine unexpected, traumatic events, like a fall from a building or a machinery malfunction. These things do happen and can cause serious worker injuries and even deaths. However, many workers are also injured in less dramatic ways. Repetitive stress or strain injuries can slowly develop over years of work and leave a worker unable to perform the same duties.
