Occupational Traumatic Injuries Among Workers in Health Care Facilities — United States, 2012–2014

One in five nonfatal occupational injuries reported in 2013 occurred among health care and social assistance workers, the highest number of such injuries reported for all private industries. CDC’s National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, with collaborating partners, created the Occupational Health Safety Network to collect detailed injury data to help target prevention efforts.



MMWR Recommendations and Reports

February 20, 2015 / Vol. 64 / No. RR–2
CE Available
Clinical Guidance for Smallpox Vaccine Use in a Postevent Vaccination Program

This report outlines recommendations for the clinical use of the three smallpox vaccines stored in the U.S. Strategic National Stockpile for persons who are exposed to smallpox virus or at high risk for smallpox infection during a postevent vaccination program following an intentional or accidental release of the virus. These recommendations will be updated as new data on smallpox vaccines become available and as further clinical guidance for other medical countermeasures including antivirals is developed.

MMWR Surveillance Summaries

April 10, 2015 / Vol. 64 / No. SS–2
Hazardous Substances Emergency Events Surveillance, Nine States, 1999–2008

The Hazardous Substances Emergency Events Surveillance (HSEES) system was operated by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) during January 1991–September 2009 to describe the public health consequences of chemical releases and to develop activities aimed at reducing the harm. This collection of surveillance summaries comprises seven reports that provide a historical overview of HSEES and summarize incidents from the nine states (Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin) that participated in HSEES during its last 10 full years of data collection (1999–2008). During the study period, 57,975 chemical incidents occurred: 41,993 (72%) that occurred at fixed facilities and 15,981 (28%) that were transportation related. The findings in this collection of surveillance summaries underscore the need for educational institutions and the general public to receive more focused outreach. In addition, the select few chemicals and industries that result in numerous incidents can be the focus of prevention activities.

MMWR Summary of Notifiable Diseases

September 19, 2014 / Vol. 61 / No. 53
Summary of Notifiable Diseases — United States, 2012

Health-care providers in the United States are required to report certain infectious diseases to a specified state or local authority. A disease is designated as notifiable if timely information about individual cases is considered necessary for prevention and control of the disease. Each year, CDC publishes a summary of the cases of notifiable disease reported for the most recent year for which data is available. This report presents a summary of notifiable diseases for 2012.

MMWR Supplements

October 31, 2014 / Vol. 63 / Supplement / No. 4
CDC National Health Report: Leading Causes of Morbidity and Mortality and Associated Behavioral Risk and Protective Factors—United States, 2005–2013

This MMWR Supplement presents data related to disease patterns across the United States and describes recent national trends in health status. Although the United States has made overall progress in improving public health and increasing life expectancy, progress has been slow, and in some aspects of health, change has not occurred or trends are not favorable.
