If you have ever injured your back at work, you are not alone. It’s happened to the best of us. You started the day hunched over a too-low medication cart sorting out pills. You faithfully followed the “no lift” policy during a patient transfer, but the equipment failed at just the wrong moment. The gentleman in room 230 started to stumble on the way to the toilet and it was only your spectacular off-kilter catch that prevented his fall. Congratulations. You just injured your back.
