SilverTriage

Nurse triage program for employee care.

 

Nurse triage program for employee care.

When one of your employees is hurt on the job, providing prompt medical attention not only helps you manage workers’ compensation costs, but it also makes employee health and welfare a top priority in your organization. SilverTriage offers the opportunity to easily provide a nurse triage service, giving your employees immediate access to a trusted resource for medical advice and case management.

How It Works

When a workplace injury occurs, your employee can call the SilverTriage toll-free helpline, staffed by a Registered Nurse (RN), 24/7. The steps involved in the call process are available here. Bilingual, Spanish-speaking nurses are also available. If emergency care is needed, your employee will be directed to call 911. In non-emergency situations, the nurse will make an assessment of the injury and recommend a plan of action. Many times, employees are able to tend injuries with self-care following a nurse’s instructions. If necessary, the nurse may direct your employee to the occupational medical clinic indicated by your workers’ compensation insurer.
