The cost of managing an occupational injury can be substantial, even for seemingly minor occurrences. In addition to the costs required to provide primary care, other costs may be related to the resolution of an injury, such as diagnostic tests, medical procedures, physical therapy, and specialist providers.
In addition, lost worktime, disruptions to operations and company productivity, temporary worker costs, disability awards, and increased workers’ compensation insurance premiums as a result of excessive occupational injuries, can further affect a company’s bottom line.
Jupiter Medical Center’s Occupational Health Services provides an effective approach to the management of work-related injuries. When evaluating your company’s workers’ compensation program, consider our expertise and resources to help manage injury occurrences and costs. For treatment of non-life-threatening injuries and for follow up care of injuries treated elsewhere, consider Occupational Health Services as an excellent treatment alternative and partner in your company’s workers’ compensation risk-reduction efforts.
Our medical staff is highly experienced in providing care of occupational injuries. We take into account such factors as the mechanism of injury and work causation. We provide effective care, utilizing as needed the extensive resources of Jupiter Medical Center, employing state of the art medical care, physical therapy, diagnostics and support services.
Our care approach includes returning employees promptly back to work, using alternate duty recommendations as appropriate. We work closely with employers to develop realistic alternate duty plans which permit return to work without compromising recovery.
We actively communicate with our clients, keeping all parties appraised of an employee’s treatment plan, recovery progress, and modification of work restrictions. We guide the treatment and return to duty process to completion and provide clear reports and information to help provide for an efficient claims adjudication process.
Our practice features preventive services on many levels. Examples include pre-screening physical assessments that determine functional capacity, a treatment approach that emphasizes employee re-injury prevention education, and plant and facility tours to address opportunities to modify work processes to reduce the incidence of injury. We partner with our clients to help drive down the incidence of injury, with an objective of helping employers’ workers’ compensation costs to trend downward.
