Worker Forced to Retire Following Workplace Injury

According to reports from earlier this month, a nursing assistant from Lincolnshire has been required to retire from work, following injuries suffered in a workplace incident.

Whilst restraining a patient, with another colleague, the nursing assistant suffered torn cartilage in his lower back – which led to hospital treatment, physiotherapy and acupuncture being required.

However, despite receiving treatment for the injury and having five months off work in the year following the incident, the nursing assistant still suffers severe pain, and is unable to conduct manual tasks – meaning he is no longer capable of carrying out the duties required as a nursing assistant.

As such, the injured individual has been required to retire on health grounds; and as such has been awarded in excess of £13,000 in injury compensation.
