Nurse Triage Hotline

Peace of mind for you and your employees when an injury happens

Even with rigorous safety procedures in place, occupational injuries can still happen. Having accurate care intervention right after a workplace accident helps prevent minor injuries from getting worse or turning into a major claim and lost work time. That’s how ICW Group’s Nurse Triage Hotline can help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Within one minute of their call, employees speak directly to a nurse who specializes in treating workplace injuries and will recommend the type of care needed. Fifteen minutes after the call, you’ll receive a summary of the visit with the nurse and a claim will be opened.

The immediate attention injured employees receive from the Nurse Triage Hotline can help reduce their stress associated with getting injured on the job.

What are the qualifications of the nurses that my employees will be calling?
The Nurse Triage Hotline is staffed by registered nurses who have physician oversight. They specialize in treating workplace injuries and use standardized protocols to assess the injury, determine the urgency, and recommend the proper level of care. They provide self-care instructions when appropriate and direct workers to medical providers including telemedicine, nearby clinics, and urgent care facilities.

The average answer time following a short greeting is less than 25 seconds.

What if my employee’s primary language is not English or Spanish?
We support over 200 additional languages by adding an interpreter to the call.

What happens if one of my worker’s calls the Nurse Triage Hotline but should be calling 911?
Our nurse will immediately direct your employee to contact 911 in the event of an emergency. If your employee is unable to make the call, the nurse will call 911.

If my employee has already seen a doctor, can they call the Nurse Triage Hotline with questions?
No, the Nurse Triage Hotline is for the first call after the injury occurs. Once a doctor has been seen, the injury “triage” has already occurred, and the employee is to follow the instructions of the doctor.

What should my employee expect when they call the Nurse Triage Hotline?
Your employee will speak to a nurse who specializes in treating workplace injuries with timely, compassionate care. The nurse will assess the injury by listening to the employee’s responses to questions about their injury. If self-care is recommended, the nurse will provide instructions over the phone and make a follow up call to the employee the next day. If a visit to a medical provider is recommended, the employee will be referred to a nearby provider and an email will be sent with the provider’s information.
