Working with the “problem” injured worker
We find that there can be what we call the “problem injured worker.” Even when all proper steps have been taken to return the employee to work, the recovery period is extended well past normal expectations. Or, as recovery progresses, other medical issues arise. In effect, there’s always another reason to prolong getting back to work.
Clearly, intervention is needed. The good news is that we have it available. We have a consultant available, an experienced Registered Nurse who is also a certified HR professional. Experience indicates that she can recommend beneficial protocols that are successful in dealing with these cases. Contact us for more information.
