What is Occupational Medicine Services?
Occupational Medicine is the practice of dealing with health conditions caused by the workplace environment. The focus is on preventing, evaluating, treating and resolving workplace health issues.
Purpose of Occupational Medicine Services
Occupational Medicine services serve employers and their employees. With on-site visits, staff are able to provide focused injury care that utilizes their knowledge of the working environment. A “back to work” philosophy seeks to minimize case length and reduce workers compensation expenses.
Guthrie County Hospital Occupational Medicine provides support from the initial process of identifying essential job functions to designing protocols to test those job functions with the goal of minimizing the risk of work-related injuries. In the event of an injury, our team will diagnose, treat, and manage the injury as well as educate the employee to reduce possible re-injury.
