CDC Occupational Hazards in Home Health Care: Checklists For Home Healthcare Workers' Safety Mobile App

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has projected home healthcare work to be the fastest growing occupation through 2016. Home healthcare workers, including home healthcare aides, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, therapy aides, social workers, and hospice care workers, face unique hazards delivering services in patients’ homes and in various diverse communities. Persons other than the patient who are residing or visiting in the patient’s home may be a risk to the worker. The CDC Occupational Hazards in Home Health Care: Checklists For Home Healthcare Workers' Safety mobile app was developed to help prevent injuries in home health care. Reference data can be customized to specific users.
