Endoscopy nurses are at risk for upper extremity injury because of the nature of their work, yet there has been little attention to this problem in the literature. The purpose of this study was to explore whether endoscopy nurses commonly experience upper extremity injuries and to identify factors associated with upper extremity injuries in this population. Results reveal that for this sample, endoscopy nurses working full-time are at the highest risk for injury, suggesting the importance of ergonomics in the endoscopy suite.
