WORKER INJURY CARE

WORK INJURY

Worker Care offers work-related injury care to any patient that can walk in for treatment, and follow-up care for those who have been seen at an Emergency Department.

WHAT WE WILL DO:
 

  • Acute injury care--initial treatment to stabilize the injury so that it can heal on its own or start the healing process with further treatment at a later date

  • Treat the injury from start to MMI (maximum medical improvement)

  • Provide case management

  • Referrals to specialists

  • Testing

  • Additional treatment

  • Communications to insurer and employer

  • Give you the tools to get back to work

THERE’S BEEN AN INJURY ON THE JOB! WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?

  • Call for help from your company’s first-aid and safety responders. 

  • Stabilize the injury and the accident scene to prevent any additional problems.

  • Make arrangements to transport the injured worker for advanced care.

  • Ask for a post-accident drug screen (if according to your company policy).

  • Remember that injured workers can go to the doctor of their choice, but Worker Care is equipped and staffed to handle ALL ambulatory injuries.
