Workplace injuries are inevitable. In 2018, there were 2.8 million nonfatal workplace injuries reported and 5,250 fatalities, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, how you as the employer deal with the injury after it happens has a huge impact on your employee’s health, his or her return to work, and ultimately your bottom line.
With every employee we see, we are looking at how to get him or her back to work—we realize that each employee is an essential part of your team. Every injury has a big impact on your employee, in how he performs his job, and how he lives his personal life. We consider health and which treatment options are the best for your employee in both the short and long-term. Additionally, we also engage each person in the health plan to create a synergistic solution to his health concern.
We focus on three key aspects in every workplace injury case.
- Keeping patients active and engaged in their recovery
- Restore normal range of motion, strength, flexibility, and stamina
- Prevent re-injury
Especially in this time of a healthcare crisis, businesses need a partner exclusively focused on occupational medicine and health management. An occupational medicine provider will help your team in after a workplace injury occurs and help you decide the next step for your employee’s and your business’ well-being.
