A common workers comp injury that tends to have severe consequences for employers are finger amputations. OSHA’s reporting rules put amputations in the same category as losing an eye and in-patient hospitalizations; only fatalities have more strict guidelines than these. From these 3 types of injuries, amputation is the only injury that could actually be prevented if the right surgeon is involved.
An amputation at the workplace can have several consequences for employers. Some of these are that OSHA might require you to update machinery which could be very expensive, OSHA might also require more frequent inspections for safety, the employee might want to sue the employer over an unsafe work environment, an increase to your worker’s compensation insurance premiums, etc.
If there is one thing that makes A&C Urgent Care stand out above the rest, is our ability to prevent amputations. Our 24/7 service means your injured employee will start receiving care immediately and our experienced orthopedic surgeons can operate in-house 24/7.
