Injury Care Work Injury Medical Treatment For a Safe and Efficient Return to Work
Mend’s workers’ compensation program is focused on achieving positive treatment outcomes while decreasing costs and lost productivity. With in-house medication and DME dispensing, Mend provides comprehensive work injury treatment at the point-of-care to minimize workplace interruption and reduce lost time.
In most major medical provider networks (MPNs), Mend provides outcomes-based medical treatment to injured workers on a walk-in basis, after hours and on weekends. Our office staff provides prompt reporting and on-going communication every step of the way towards a safe and efficient return-to-work.
With X-Ray and suturing capabilities, our urgent care centers have experienced occupational medicine clinicians ready to treat most non-emergency injuries on the job, including:
- Cuts, abrasions and bruises
- Injuries from falls or lifting
- Sprains of joints (fingers, wrists, ankles, knees, shoulders, elbows)
- Muscular strains (back, neck)
- Eye injuries and irrigation
- Broken bones
Your Trusted Partner For Workplace Injuries
Unlike other occupational health clinics, Mend does not run in-house physical therapy or other ancillary services, meaning the care your employee receiving is efficient, safe, and meant to return the employee back to work.
How do I send an injured worker to Mend for treatment?
For initial visits, please provide a completed Treatment Authorization Form (attached here) that includes the employee’s information, your information, your authorization for treatment, and your worker’s compensation insurance carrier information. You’ll receive a Doctor’s First Report (DFR) and any applicable documentation (e.g. Work Status report, Request for Authorizations, notes etc.) detailing the care provided and the plan for treatment to return to work.
For subsequent visits, Mend can serve as the Primary Treating Physician (PTP) in an on-going capacity to return the employee safely and efficiently back to work as an in-network provider for your worker’s compensation insurance carrier. Mend is an in-network provider for most major MPNs. If Mend is not listed as a provider in your MPN, please contact us to discuss a nomination to treat your workforce.
