Abstract

Using the 2007 National Home Health Aide Survey, this studied examined the effects of workplace injury to home health aides on both worker and organizational outcomes. It was found that home health aides who had been injured had lower job satisfaction and higher intent to turnover as well as a lower likelihood of recommending their agency as being a place to either work or seek care services from. Additionally, the study found worker perceptions of poor training and poor supervisory support were significantly related to higher risk of workplace injuries. Occupational health and safety implications are discussed.
