|We have BWC-certified physicians and medical associates to treat injuries sustained while at work. We have x-ray capability to enable us to properly assess and treat your specific injury, and have an extensive referral system in place if more specialized treatment is necessary, including physical therapists and orthopedic, ophthalmologists , and plastic surgeons.
The more common injuries that we treat include, but are not limited to:
Work Restrictions – We believe that an employer best knows the specific requirements of any job. In order for us to better understand the injured worker’s duties, it is helpful when employers provide us with details of a job. Our philosophy is to return employees to work with restrictions, if needed, and allow the employer to determine whether transitional positions are available. This promotes better employee morale and healing time, and lowers employer costs.
Cuts, punctures, abrasions, foreign bodies;
- Contusions, bruises, crush injuries;
- Sprains, strains, muscle pulls, groin injuries;
- Back injuries;
- Head injuries;
- Eye injuries, foreign objects, eye abrasions.
Referrals to Selected Specialists – Through affiliations with other medical practices, we have an extensive referral system in place if more specialized treatment is necessary, including physical therapists and orthopedic, optic, and plastic surgeons to ensure that all of your employee’s medical needs are met in a coordinated process. Referral appointments can normally be scheduled within 48 hours of the injury.
Follow-up Care – Depending on the nature of an injury, follow-up care is provided on treated injuries, as necessary, at any of our 9 offices; no appointments are necessary.
Return to Duty Evaluations – Evaluations can be done to ensure that injured workers have sufficiently recovered from their injuries prior to returning to full duty, reducing the likelihood of a reoccurrence of the same injury.
Employer Communication – We believe that it is important for employers to have appropriate communication with their physician. Prior to any injury, our physicians will spend time with you reviewing your specific job requirements, and provide suggestions. After an injury, we will provide a status report on the recovery of your injured worker.
Please contact an Occupational Health Services Account Representative if you have any questions regarding your specific needs.
