I Felt That I Got the Best Care I Deserved

"From the moment I stepped into this clinic, I felt I was in very capable hands. From the front staff to my medical provider, I feel like I am getting the care that I need and deserve. Dr. Nas not only listened to my concerns but she was also engaged in our conversations. She was very knowledgeable in her field and I felt that I got the best care I deserved. I would highly recommend Portland Urgent Care. 27 years in the medical field and this was my first worker’s comp injury and it’s very frustrating because I was hurt by a third party. I had no idea what steps needed to be taken and they have helped me thoroughly in scheduling all necessary appointments. From the front staff, CMA’s, and my doctor, I felt that I received the quality of care that I deserved to recover from my injury."

  • Fractures: Bone fractures can result from falls, collisions, or accidents involving heavy machinery.
  • Cuts and Lacerations: Sharp tools or equipment in various industries can lead to cuts and lacerations.
  • Burns: Workers in industries involving heat sources or chemicals are at risk of suffering burns
  • Repetitive Stress Injuries: Jobs that require repetitive motions, such as typing or assembly line work, can lead to conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Workers' Compensation?

Workers' compensation is a state-regulated insurance program designed to provide financial assistance and medical benefits to employees who are injured or become ill due to work-related activities. The primary goals of workers' compensation are to:

  • Provide Medical Treatment: Workers' compensation covers the cost of medical treatment and rehabilitation needed to recover from a work-related injury or illness.
  • Replace Lost Wages: If an injury prevents you from working, workers' compensation provides wage replacement benefits to partially compensate for lost income during your recovery period.
  • Protect Employers: In exchange for these benefits, employees typically waive their right to sue their employer for negligence in cases of work-related injuries.
  • Promote Safety: Workers' compensation laws encourage employers to maintain safe working conditions by imposing penalties for violations and providing incentives for safety programs.

What Happens if You Are Hurt or Injured on the Job?

If you are hurt or injured on the job, you need to see a medical professional to help diagnose your injury and establish a treatment plan. You may need physical medicine to help you in your recovery. Here's a general overview of what happens in such situations:

  • Notify Your Supervisor: The first and most crucial step is to report the injury to your supervisor or employer as soon as possible. Timely reporting is vital as it ensures that the incident is documented, and appropriate actions can be taken.
  • Seek Immediate Medical Attention: If your injury is severe or requires immediate medical attention, do not hesitate to call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. Your health should be the top priority.
  • Workers' Compensation Claim: In most cases, you will be eligible to file a workers' compensation claim. Workers' compensation is an insurance program that provides medical benefits and wage replacement to employees who are injured while performing their job duties. The specific process for filing a claim may vary by state, but it typically involves notifying your employer and completing necessary paperwork.
  • Medical Evaluation: After reporting the injury, your employer may instruct you to see a company-designated healthcare provider for an initial evaluation. This evaluation helps determine the extent of your injuries and establishes a baseline for treatment.
  • Follow Medical Advice: It's crucial to follow your healthcare provider's recommendations for treatment and recovery. Failure to do so can affect your eligibility for workers' compensation benefits.
  • Communication and Documentation: Maintain clear communication with your employer, healthcare providers, and the workers' compensation insurer throughout the recovery process. Keep records of all medical appointments, bills, and correspondence related to your injury.
  • Return to Work: Depending on your recovery progress, you may be cleared to return to work either with restrictions or without. Your employer is obligated to provide reasonable accommodations if necessary.

Types of Work Injuries That Should Be Deemed Urgent:

Fractures and Dislocations: Broken bones or dislocated joints need immediate attention to prevent further damage and facilitate proper healing.

Deep Cuts and Lacerations: Severe cuts that are bleeding heavily or that expose underlying tissues may require stitches or sutures to minimize scarring and infection risk.

Head Injuries: Any head injury, especially those resulting in loss of consciousness, should be evaluated promptly to rule out concussions or more severe traumatic brain injuries.

Eye Injuries: Injuries to the eye, including foreign objects embedded in the eye or chemical exposures, can cause permanent damage if not treated quickly.

Burns: Severe burns or burns on the face, hands, feet, or genitalia should be treated urgently to prevent infection and minimize scarring.

Electrical or Chemical Exposure: Workers exposed to electricity or hazardous chemicals should seek immediate evaluation, as these exposures can have delayed health effects.

Back Injuries: Serious back injuries, especially those causing loss of sensation or motor function, require immediate attention to prevent permanent damage.

Crush Injuries: Injuries resulting from heavy objects or machinery accidents should be evaluated urgently for internal injuries.

Falls from Heights: Falls from elevated surfaces, such as ladders or scaffolding, can lead to severe injuries like fractures or spinal injuries.

Heat-Related Illnesses: Workers experiencing symptoms of heat exhaustion or heatstroke should seek immediate medical care to prevent life-threatening complications.
