Common Disabilities Affecting Medical Professionals
Medical professionals most often perform highly intensive job responsibilities and work-related duties. Your jobs often require working long and unusual hours, making sacrifices in your personal lives, and having to balance your personal and professional life. There is also a tremendous amount of stress associated with caring for each and every one of your patients. Unfortunately, over time, performing your duties at the high level required, especially in today’s work environment of managed care, lower third-party reimbursements, and the scrutiny of many interested parties in your treatment, compromises your psychological and physiological wellbeing. It is increasingly more common to incur a host of orthopedic conditions, mental nervous conditions, as well as a multitude of addictions which prevent you from caring for your patients, and which negatively affect a medical professional’s ability to work. It is important for medical professionals to recognize and understand when your own medical conditions begin to negatively impact your performance at work, resulting in a loss of income.
