Injury Management Matters: First Aid or Medical Treatment?
Orginal webinar date: March 21, 2017
Speaker: Peter P. Greaney, M.D., is the President, C.E.O. and Medical Director of WorkCare, Inc., a national occupational health services company based in Anaheim, California.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has established definitions for first aid (non-recordable) and medical treatment (recordable care). It has also issued Letters of Interpretation to provide further clarification on interventions such as exercise regimens, splinting, taping and use of rigid braces. Effective work-related injury management requires knowledge of specific medical complaints, care definitions and appropriate response (right care, in the right place, at the right time, in the right setting).
