Exercise medical control: Did you know that you might have control over the medical care of your injured employees for the first 30 days after the injury?

Communicate with your employees. Show them you care about their Well — being. If an employee is injured, Stay in touch throughout his or her recuperation

If, prior to the injury, your employee did not notify you in writing of the name and address of his or her personal physician, you have the right to arrange for the treatment of the employee by a physician of your choice for the first 30 days after the injury. Industrial clinics can cost considerably less then a hospital emergency room and they are familiar with workers compensation insurance procedures. If you do not know of a physician or medical facility, call your carrier for suggestions.

Be sure to post notices with name, address, and phone number of your medical provider so your employees know where to go in case of an injury.

If the employee has previously notified you of his or her personal physician, the employee has the right to be seen by that physician, unless an emergency requires otherwise. Remember, the first concern after an injury is to get prompt medical attention.
