The Four Pillars of Occupational Health

Injury Management

We know you work hard to avoid injuries occurring in your workplace. But, unfortunately accidents happen. When they do, we’re here to help.

Occupational Health Services can manage your employees’ care from the time of the injury until they are fully recovered. We understand the importance of providing the very best care to the injured individual to achieve full recovery so they can return to full function as early as possible.

We also understand the legal and regulatory issues that employers face, and we will work with you to avoid lost days and avoid management choices that trigger recording requirements whenever possible, all while ensuring that the injured individual receives the care that they need. If duty restrictions are necessary, we can work with you to customize a plan that protects the injured employee and also allows them to return to work in a safe and productive manner.

During the injured employee’s recovery period we provide proactive follow up to ensure that all prescribed interventions are provided as planned and that they are recovering as anticipated. We also will order and follow up on advanced therapeutic modalities and specialty consultations when necessary. Other components of injury management include: case management, rehabilitation and work hardening programs. We are available to discuss the management of injured employees whenever you have questions or concerns.

And, as a part of Self Medical Group, we are able to collaborate with other physicians, specialists and surgeons – providing comprehensive and effective treatment. In addition to our dedicated staff, we have access to the complete array of diagnostic, therapeutic and consultant physician services available at Self Regional Healthcare and Self Medical Group. We will take full advantage of this access whenever advanced services are needed in caring for your employees.
