Then in this week’s special tip segment we visit with Aline Bazerghi from Ergotron to talk some more about their survey and study of nurses and injury rates related to computer workstations and repetitive stress injury. We’ll have that and more later in this episode after the news.

Tip of the Week – Ergotron’s Aline Bazerghi on Tips for Nurse Safety
I got the chance to work with some of our current sponsor Ergotron’s experts on their research into nurse workplace injury and safety. I interviewed Aline Bazerghi about her interactions with nurses and hospital representatives when she talks with them about proper positioning and repetitive stress injury in the workplace.
Ergotron commissioned a study of nurses to see how much time they spent on their documentation and how they felt about their chances of getting injured on the job. 60% of nurses are concerned that their job is negatively impacting their own health and 12% have been injured on the job over the past year. Over 50% of the nurses surveyed commonly suffer from back pain and sore necks.
I’ll have a link in the show notes about that survey so you can check it out for yourself. Here’s the interview with Aline with some tips on how you can get your workplace and computer stations in a position to work without strain or injury.
If you have any questions, links and more reference information is available in the show notes for this episode over nursingshow.com.
