Today in the United States, companies are required to provide workers’ compensation to employees for a workplace injury. Most states require that employers purchase some type of workers’ compensation policy. Workers’ Compensation is a valuable program which assists injured employees and helps get them back to health while protecting employers from potential litigation.
Accidents happen even in the safest workplaces. On average, four percent of U.S. workers are injured on the job each year. With 144 million workers employed nationwide, the workers’ compensation sector is huge. Fortunately, innovations, new technologies, and medical advances are available to make workplace injuries less traumatic for employees and less costly for employers. Case in point: Nurse triage.
Nurse Triage as a Workers’ Compensation Tool
As noted in an article on the National Institutes of Health website, nurse triage ensures that injured employees are assessed as quickly as possible after an incident. The sooner an injured patient is evaluated by a trained medical provider, the better the outcome for both the employee and the employer. A nurse quickly addresses the employee’s injury and provides a plan to relieve pain and anxiety. Receiving medical advice early on minimizes the risks of medical complications.
Company Nurse Brings Nurse Triage Directly to Your Workplace
As noted in the Journal of Risk and Insurance, anything an employer can do to improve employee well-being adds value by lowering health insurance costs, reducing worker’s compensation claims, and reducing expenses related to hiring temporary employees to fill in for injured employees taking time off to recuperate.
