You may think that employees of personal care facilities are in a low-risk environment. But that’s not true.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, personal care facilities and nursing homes have a lost workday illness injury rate (LWDII) that is more than four times higher than mining, construction, and manufacturing!
One of the main reasons for this is because of all the injuries that happen while employees are manually lifting patients. Injuries frequently occur when employees are moving residents to and from bed, helping them bathe and positioning them in chairs.

PCALIC is the best. They were able to get my business insured without any long hassles or anything. PCALIC gave me their word on how long it would take for them to get me insured and they did exactly what they said. They returned my phone calls in a timely manner without a problem at all. PCALIC was there for me when everyone else gave me nothing but the run around. I Love PCALIC. Thanks for everything that you all do!
