Few companies are large enough to support a full-tme corporate medical director. Unique to the Salem area's occupational health clinics, SOHC employs a medical director who is a residency trained, board-certified specialist in occupational medicine.
When you are a client of SOHC, our medical director becomes a part of your team and will visit the worksite to familiarize himself with the various work stations and potential opportunities for post-injury modified duty. In addition, if desired, the medical director will also assist you with:
Recommendations for preventing injury
The formulation of occupational medicine policies and procedures
Reviewing occupational health and safety programs
Identifying and cooperating with medical specialists, industrual hygienests, safety professionals, toxicologists, ergonomic specialists, epidemiologists, and health promotion and employee assitance programs
Understanding and complying with DOT, OSHA, and ADA regulations.
At SOHC convenience and communication are important. In all cases we will provide timely feedback regarding examination and testing results. We will call, fax or email your pre-selected contact person with current work restrictions after each appointment. We will inform you of any missed appointments. Our medical staff is available to answer your questions at any time during business hours.
Additional services are also available:
Case Management: If desired by a client company, the SOHC case manager will
Track the status of an injured employee who is placed on light duty or lost time.
Track the status of an injured employee who is referred by SOHC to a specialist or to another facility for additional diagnostic testing or specialized treatment.
Serve as the liaison between the physician, emplyer, and insurance company, or managed care organization to track the disability status, projected return to work date, or other necessary information needed to get the employee back on the job.
Contact the employee during lost time to ensure he/she understands workers' compensation benefits and responsibilities.
Continually update the employer on the condition of the employee
Return to Work: Some occupational injuries and deseases require special accomodations to allow the employee to return to light duty or modified work.
