  • You will be greeted by a live person who will ask a few questions.  You will need to provide the person  with your name,  the name of the company, and the name of the injured employee, your phone number and a brief description of the incident.
  • The person will then dispatch the on call nurse/provider who will return your call within 15 minutes and assess the situation.

At this point, a determination will be made to treat the injured employee in the U.S. Healthworks facility immediately, refer the patient to the hospital Emergency Room if the injury is very serious, or triage the patient and have the patient seen the next day during regular office hours.  The type and severity of the injury will determine the appropriate course of action.
