Do you have an injured worker?
Calling Nurse Triage Instead of a Doctor Can Mean Big WC Savings.

Save on Workers Comp with a Telephone Triage NurseEveryone is looking for ways to keep workers’ comp costs down. One of the best and easiest ways is to use a nurse triage hotline.  By making a simple call to a toll free number many workers’ injuries can be diagnosed over the phone and, in some cases, treated.

It’s an idea whose time has come. Your worker gets immediate care from a trained medical professional. Treating injuries in a timely fashion prevents them from getting worse. Often care can be administered on the spot saving a trip to the hospital.  Or in the case of a more severe injury the nurse will recommend the appropriate level of care saving your business both time and money.  Obviously if a worker requires an ambulance just call 911.

Additionally, the nurse triage call center has on hand all of the appropriate insurance and Workers’ Compensation forms and generates a report and issues it to all the interested parties including you, the claims adjuster, the RTW coordinator, and the physician insuring that the paperwork is completed in a timely fashion with fewer hold up and hassles.

Reduce claims by up to 40%

The biggest benefit of using a nurse triage hotline is 20 to 40 percent of the calls turn into “report only”. In other words, the injury is not severe and is just a matter of applying on site first aid. This is a win win. Your employee feels cared for and treated in a timely fashion and you get your worker back quickly and without a Workers’ Compensation claim.
