With an estimated 800,000 healthcare workers suffering needlestick and sharps injuries each year, chances are you or someone you know has already been affected.
Workers’ compensation typically covers the cost for the employee’s initial blood test. That way, any resulting infections can be identified and treated much sooner. Employer’s liability insurance may also be considered to offer additional protection if your employee files a lawsuit. Check with your agent to see if your insurance coverage offers this type of protection.
Note: Actual policies must be consulted for specific terms and conditions.
