Health care employees are one of the most at-risk for contracting COVID-19 due to close proximity to carriers of the virus while on the job. The CDC has issued numerous coronavirus safety regulations for health care facility operators and employers, but thousands of nursing home wrongful death claims have been brought against negligent facilities and employers since March 2020.

If you tested positive for COVID-19 as a nurse, whether in a hospital or nursing home setting, and believe that your employer is to blame for your illness, you could be eligible to bring a St. Louis COVID-19 work injury claim. Contact the Missouri Injury Law Firm today for a free case review and to find out whether you have a viable negligence claim against your employer.

Can Nurses Sue for Work-Related Coronavirus?

Health care facilities, such as hospitals and nursing homes, are required to strictly follow state and federal COVID-19 prevention guidelines. If these guidelines aren't followed, and an employee gets sick, the facility can be sued for negligence. Examples of situations where a nurse could be eligible to sue for COVID-19 workers' compensation include:

  • Facility's failure to provide protective equipment, such as masks and gloves
  • Proof of a hazardous work environment - failure to frequently sanitize shared surfaces
  • Failure to isolate sick patients and residents
  • Failure to prohibit sick employees from working

If your employer hasn't taken the necessary steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and you became infected with the virus as a nurse, you could be entitled to workers' compensation damages as a result of your employer's negligence.
