Occupational Medicine and On-The-Job Injuries
When a teammate is injured on the job, every minute counts. Every minute the injured worker is in pain wondering what is going to happen and the injured person’s employer wonders what’s happening to a valuable member of the team.
In an emergency, seek care through the nearest Emergency Room, but if the injury is not life-threatening, the expertise of a physician who specializes in occupational medicine can save valuable time. A doctor who practices occupational medicine can treat work-related injuries with many of the same services as the ER without the significant patient load. Occupational medical clinics work like a mini emergency department with a surgical and trauma suite, digital x-rays, and even a dispensing pharmacy.
The occupational medical clinic focuses on treating the injured teammate aggressively while focusing on early, appropriate return to work minimizing lost time and getting the injured member of the team back as soon as possible. The clinic is equipped to communicate with the employer and fast, expedient, and cost-effective services.
Treating workplace injuries is just one of the goals of occupational medicine. Occupational medical doctors also focus on preventing workplace injuries and helping identify causes of workplace complaints both at the job site and in our office.
