A health unit located at your facility can be a convenient and beneficial resource for providing on-site diagnosis and treatment of illnesses and injuries for your employees.
The health units are set up to be private, equipped for a variety of services, and professionally staffed. An occupational health registered nurse can render first aid, monitor employees on leaves of absence, and conduct educational programs for your facility. Services also include providing workplace accident education and management, oversight and organization of preventive health screenings and health fairs, administration of preventive care shots, and basic health care. Primary care services can be provided by a physician, nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant on-site to employees with work-related and non-work-related illnesses.
Having a medical professional within your facility will also expedite care within Cookeville Regional Medical Center when emergency care, outpatient procedures (including lab studies) or imaging services are needed.
