If the illness or injury is life threatening, call 911!
For non-life threatening injuries or illnesses, during normal business hours, the employee should:
1. immediately notify their supervisor,
2. call the Company Nurse Injury Hotline,
3. seek treatment (if needed) in Health Services located in DSC 102.
If the injury occurs after hours, during the weekend, or away from campus, employees should contact Company Nurse for a referral.
If no medical treatment is needed, the employee must complete an Injury Incident Report Form. Failure to report an injury before seeking treatment may result in a denial of medical benefits until the employee notifies their supervisor or employer representative.
Please call the Injury Hotline BEFORE coming to Health Services.
(Health Services providers can not offer treatment until the call is made and
the necessary paperwork is received from Company Nurse).
Prescriptions: When an injured employee reports a new workers’ compensation injury for which he or she is going to receive medical treatment; some employees may need a prescription filled. These employees will need a Temporary Prescription Form. Health Services will provide this form. All prescription requests are approved through Public Employee Claims Division (PECD). In some cases the injured employee may need additional prescriptions; once approved, a permanent prescription card will be mailed to the employee’s home address.
There may be times when Health Services needs to refer employees elsewhere for further examination and/or treatment. All referrals or follow-up appointments must be approved in advance by the Public Employee Claims Division (PECD).
PECD, NOT HEALTH SERVICES STAFF, determine whether or not an employee’s claim
is eligible for workers’ compensation benefits.
