Frequent Injuries Among VA Staff

Stress-Related Conditions: The emotional toll of working with veterans, especially those with complex needs, can lead to stress-related conditions such as PTSD or burnout.

Slips, Trips, and Falls: Working in hospitals or clinics means navigating busy environments where slips, trips, and falls are common, leading to sprains, fractures, and other injuries.

Exposure-Related Illnesses: Clinical staff may be exposed to infectious diseases or hazardous materials, resulting in occupational illnesses that require immediate and specialized care.
