Occupational medicine focuses on the health, safety, and performance of workers. It involves not only treating employees with workplace injuries, but also helping to prevent future injury. Our goal at Cardinal Urgent Care is to provide the necessary medical care and attention to employees so they can return to work, quickly and safely.
Treating On-the-Job Injuries
Our urgent care specialists work to help you heal after an illness or injury that occurs in the workplace. We are experienced with treating a wide range of health issues and familiar with the requisite laws and state regulations concerning workers’ compensation claims. We provide comprehensive medical care and will communicate with all required parties.
At Cardinal Urgent Care, we also provide the following employment-related screenings and tests:
- DOT Physicals. We perform DOT regulated exams and DOT regulated drug screening collections. DOT physicals are done Wednesday-Saturday weekly.
- Drug Screen Collections. We perform DOT, non-DOT, and rapid point of care drug testing. We offer pre-employment, post-offer, post accident, random, and follow-up drug screening collections.
- TB Testing. This blood test looks for the presence of a tuberculosis infection and is often required for certain professions by state regulation.
- Blood Tests & Vaccines. For example, we run titers blood tests that can determine a person’s antibody levels to confirm whether an individual has immunity to certain viruses. If the test shows that antibody levels are low, a vaccine may be required to increase a person’s immunity to diseases such as chickenpox, hepatitis B, measles, mumps, and rubella. This type of testing is often required for jobs in certain fields, such as healthcare jobs or those involving the preparation of food or the care of children.
We also work directly with employers to ensure your employee screening needs are met on a timely and affordable basis.
