Report the injury to your supervisor as soon as possible. Emergent steps may be needed if your injury involves bleeding, unconsciousness, or a serious physical injury to include calling 911 and/or being transported by ambulance to an area hospital.
If the injury is a musculoskeletal injury, your supervisor will work with you to schedule a therapy evaluation at Innovate Physical Therapy. A physician’s order is needed to continue further treatment.
If the injury requires medical attention, a Return to Employment Recommendation form will be provided and the medical provider must complete, outlining any restrictions or if cleared to return to work with no restrictions. Please NOTE, you are responsible for providing this form to the medical provider for completion and returning it to your supervisor by the next business day.
Per the Nebraska Workers’ Compensation Act, if your workplace injury requires time off from work, the first seven days are considered a waiting period and are not paid unless you have PTO. On the eighth calendar day you are eligible for indemnity payments (wage replacement) from Hillcrest’s insurance carrier.
Should you have any questions involving a worker compensation claim, benefits, or anything related to workers compensation, feel free to contact the Hillcrest Director of Compliance, Shane Young, at (402)-682-4165.
