Nursing is among the most noble, and yet most dangerous professions. Each year, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that over 35,000 nurses are injured while caring for patients. Injuries range from back injuries to needle sticks. These injuries impact their ability to perform their jobs and care for the patients they are responsible for.
Injured workers in Illinois are at risk of losing many of the benefits they depend upon to help them recover from work related injuries. As the state enters the fourth month of the current fiscal year without a budget, Governor Rauner continues to push for reforming the state's workers' compensation system in the hopes that it will balance the state budget.
