  • Description
    "Providing high-quality health care should not be hazardous to the health worker. Historically, the focus on improving health service delivery quality and ensuring patients’ rights has superseded attention to the personal safety and health of the provider (NIOSH 2009). But if health workers are not protected, how can the wellness of their patients be assured?" (extract from document)
