Workers Compensation Program

The purpose of this service is to ensure that drug and alcohol testing is performed appropriately on identified emergency department patients who have been injured on the job.

Specific instruction sheets are included in the emergency department medical record. The attending physician and nurse carry out those instructions to ensure that proper drug and alcohol testing is performed. Return-to-work instruction sheets are also completed for businesses requiring them.
