The Corvallis Clinic Occupational Medicine’s Nurse Plus 24/7 program offers a cost-effective solution for businesses’ injury care needs. Through this program, a nurse trained in occupational medicine is available to assist your supervisors when an accident occurs any time of day or night, for a monthly cost of about $1 a day per employee.

Sometimes workers are treated in emergency rooms when conservative treatment may have been just as effective. And physicians who treat injured workers are not always aware of the significance of the OSHA 300 log for reporting injuries.
