When should we send a work comp injury to the clinic versus the Emergency Room?

In the case of a severed limb, a person who is unconscious or any injury that requires an ambulance, you would send the patient to the closest ER. Please note that if you use the Huntsville Hospital, Madison Hospital or Decatur-Morgan Hospital ER, OHG will have access to those patient records for follow up visits if necessary. Please be sure to send an After Hours Treatment Authorization Formwith the employee to be sure the ER staff know to treat the case as a Work Comp injury.
