Occupational Health is the ability of an associate to work at a premium level of well-being. Factors determining occupational health may include things such as productivity, work attendance, disability compensation claims and employment longevity.
Trinity Regional Health System desires that all of our associates and volunteers are working in a productive and satisfying environment. Our attitudes and thoughts are passed on indirectly to the patients that we serve. A positive experience for us results in a positive experience for our patients.
Work Related Injuries/Treatment & Follow-up
Work related incidents are very serious and should follow appropriate protocol to ensure that all necessary parties are notified and that anyone involved is cared for. This policy provides a process to assure the care of the injured health care employee and provide appropriate documentation. Read the full policy here
Our Workers’ Compensation guidelines identify the process for appropriate identification and management of bona fide on-the-job injuries as covered under any applicable workers' compensation act. This includes payment of related medical expenses, and lost time from work due to the identified on-the-job injury or illness. Read the full policy here
Workers’ Compensation/Alternative Duty
Alternative Duty is a program designed to assist the associate as they "transition" back to a full recovery. If the associate has permanent restrictions which make them unable to perform the essential functions of their job they are not a candidate for the Alternative Duty Program. Under this program, workers injured on the job return to productive work at the earliest and most appropriate time. The less time an associate is off work, the more likely a full recovery will be made. Read the full policy here
