Occupational Health Nurses
Expert help in managing your WSIB and STD absences
Managing WSIB claims and long- and short-term disability claims involves a lot of follow-up that is not easily managed by your HR staff. You need someone who understands what information is required, and how to interpret that information.
A nurse case manager is just such an expert. A specific occupational health nurse is assigned to each of your WSIB and STD cases, and this individual is familiar with the processes involved and the paperwork and information required, as well the medical knowledge to help you make decisions.
A nurse case manager can assist with many aspects of these claims and return-to-work processes, including:
- Liaising between the employer, the employee, the employee’s physician and the WMC physician
Coordinating additional tests and services to assess conditions and suitability for modified work duties. These tests can include:
- Functional Abilities Evaluations for modified duties
- Physical Demands Analysis
- Independent Medical Exams
WMC can also provide on-site occupational health nurses to assist you in reducing avoidable absences. Learn more by contacting us today.
