In an effort to more effectively manage our workers’ compensation claims, Huntington Beach City School District has implemented an injury management program called Company Nurse®. When you encounter a workplace injury, the supervisor and injured employee will call the Company Nurse® injury Hotline as soon as possible after the injury/incident occurs. After the Injury Care Coordinator records the injury and incident information, the attending nurse will provide first aid advice and direct the injured employee to an appropriate workers comp treatment site if needed. COMPANY NURSE® will handle all initial reporting of workplace injuries.
Here’s how it works:
The process is simple. Just call! If an injury is not a medical emergency, the INJURED WORKER will telephone COMPANY NURSE® at 844-531-1259 or submit an online injury report before seeking treatment. They will speak with a Registered Nurse who will assist the employee with his or her medical needs and expedite the claims processing. The nurse will talk to the manager first and then the employee to determine what kind of treatment, if any, is necessary for the employee based upon their conversation with them and the manager.
Important Hotline facts:
The COMPANY NURSE® INJURY HOTLINE is available 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
The advantage of a medical professional assisting in directing the employee’s medical treatment should result in cost savings and fewer claims if first aid can be applied. Furthermore, employees will receive instant telephonic first aid advice from a Registered Nurse and be referred for further treatment if needed.
Your cooperation and participation are appreciated. Please do not hesitate to contact the Human Resources Assistant at 714-378-2021 if you have any questions regarding this process.
