Step 4: Facility Referral Medical Treatment Centers If medical treatment is needed, a facility referral will be made. TriageNow immediately notifies the Medical Facility if the injured employee is arriving and sends an incident report to District Risk Management. U.S. Healthworks FastMed Concentra NOTE: Centers with this sign do not accept Industrial Injury cases.
Step 5 Physicians Release Notice Upon return to work, you must provide your supervisor with a physicians release to duty. If you are released to light or modified duty, the medical release form must indicate these limitations. District policy is to accommodate all light duty restrictions.
Good To Know Always call TriageNow unless the injury can be treated with a first aid kit. Example: paper cut Call TriageNow again if symptoms worsen or new symptoms arise. Interpreters are available if necessary. TriageNow automatically sends reports to Risk Management and the Work Comp Adjustor after completion of the call.
