How Nurse Triage Works

Injury Occurs – The injury is reported to the employer and a workers’ comp claim is filed.

Nurse Intervention – The new claim is immediately escalated to a trained nurse case manager to expedite the processing of claim.

Clinical Evaluation – A thorough medical assessment is completed in alignment with the Official Disability Guidelines, and a recommended action plan is developed.

Four-Point Contact – Nurse facilitates communication with all involved parties to ensure accountability and efficient management of claim.
