How Teletriage Works
By using Medcor’s teletriage solutions, employers can avoid unnecessary workers’ comp claims and OSHA recordables. Here’s how it works:
- An employee sustains injury or illness on the jobsite
- The employee contacts their supervisor
- The supervisor calls Medcor’s 24/7 injury triage to connect with a registered nurse
- The telephone triage nurse assesses the severity of the injury and either advises on First Aid or where to seek further treatment
