|Title:||Occupational Trauma Of The Vertebral Column In Nursing Workers [lesões Ocupacionais Afetando A Coluna Vertebral Em Trabalhadores De Enfermagem.]|
|Abstract:||All occupational accidents (CAT) reported at a University hospital, from January 1990 to December 1997, were analyzed and the characteristics of the vertebral column trauma caused by the occupational accidents involving members of the nursing team were investigated. During this period, 531 accidents were reported and 37 (7%) of these were typical vertebral column traumas. These results suggested that the number of accidents reported were below actual estimates and that the nursing auxiliaries were the most affected. The accidents were mainly caused by falls and during the transport or transfer of patients and equipments.|
