Abstract
Driving from client to client, home healthcare workers are at high risk for motor vehicle-related injuries. Distracted driving, aggressive driving, lack of seatbelt use, driving while tired or after having used alcohol or drugs, poor weather conditions, and poorly maintained vehicles can all contribute to motor vehicle-related injuries.
