Catastrophic Injuries Need Serious Care Management from Your Work Comp Management Team

Written by on 11/13/2017 1:00 AM in , , , . It has 1 Comments.

Your work comp management team is fantastic at ensuring early intervention for critically injured workers, but are they dropping the ball post-stabilization? Too often the fragmented nature of healthcare delivery falls short of meeting the long-term care needs of catastrophically injured workers.

Myopic Focus
injured workers and their caregivers often find themselves unable to cope with the consequences of injuries when they're discharged too soon or into the wrong environment. This is particularly true if they don't have the knowledge to navigate the challenges of a permanently changed life. This can quickly lead patients down a costly and calamitous path to the ‘vortex of failure.’

How Can Your Work Comp Management Team Prevent Such Catastrophic Consequences?

  • Challenge the System
    Specialized care and rehabilitative service is where the traditional care model often misses the boat. Medically-stable, catastrophically injured patients may fare better in a skilled nursing or residential rehab facility before going home.

  • Understand the Step-Down Process for Catastrophic Claims is Different
    This is not a sprained wrist or rotator cuff injury, catastrophic claims managers need to answer these critical questions before recommending the next step-down:
    • What additional services will the injured worker need to function independently?
    • How will the injured worker re-adapt to life in their ‘normal’ home/community setting?
    • Do they have a close family member/caregiver that can help them cope with the after-effects of the injury?
    • Can the employee return to work?

  • Get the Injured Worker’s Family Involved
    Ensure the long-term knowledge, skills and compassion necessary to support the injured worker are in place.
