A Nurse Triage Program facilitates immediate telephonic contact with a Professional Nurse on a 24/7 basis for the injured employee, while at the same time providing immediate accident reporting to the carrier if requested, at the time the incident is reported by supervisory staff at the place of employment.
Advantages of a 24/7 Nurse Triage Program include:
- Quality medical recommendations are provided at the time of the event, minimizing financial impact and duration of the claim
- Timely Incident Reporting – A First Report of Injury is created for the carrier or TPA to assure timely reporting
- Preferred provider can be recommended – thereby avoiding out of network fees
- The employer is not responsible for making medical decisions for the employee
