Nurse Stressed Out

Nursing Home Workers Now Have The Most Dangerous Jobs in America. They Deserve Better.

As covid-19 has ravaged nursing homes, it has also made working in these facilities the most dangerous job in America. Since the start of the pandemic, facilities have reported 760 covid-19-related deaths among their staff.

If deaths continue at this pace over a full year, it will equate to more than 200 fatalities per 100,000 workers. This would more than double the rate of previous years’ deadliest occupations, such as logging and commercial fishing.
