  • Injury from a falling object

  • Accidents related to machinery
  • Burns
  • Lacerations

All of these injuries can be evaluated and treated right on site at ER QuickCare.

When should workers’ compensation injuries be reported?

Workers’ compensation injuries should be reported as quickly as possible once they occur. This means that employees who are injured should immediately notify their supervisor. The supervisor informs the employee about any guidelines they need to follow for workers’ compensation reporting.

Who pays for workers’ compensation treatment?

Workers’ compensation treatment is paid for by the employer, but first it’s important that the patient makes sure that their claim is accepted. The medical benefits provider for workers’ compensation may be different than the provider the employee has for their own personal medical benefits.

Why are drug tests administered with workers’ comp exams?

Drug tests are administered with workers’ comp exams due to state law. The team at ER QuickCare strives to adhere to all state laws regarding workers’ comp. ER QuickCare wants to do everything possible to make sure people don’t have any problems getting their workers’ comp claim accepted.

What type of information do patients need to bring to ER QuickCare when they arrive for a workers’ compensation exam?

If you are visiting ER QuickCare for a workers’ comp exam, be sure to bring along an authorization of treatment form from your employer. Additionally, you should bring current photo identification, such as a driver’s license. New workers’ comp patients are asked to provide details about their injury or illness in the new patient paperwork. The ER QuickCare team is dedicated to making the entire workers’ compensation treatment process as easy as possible for you. This should be a time of recovery, so the team at ER QuickCare helps patients achieve full recovery in the best way possible.
