Injured Worker Transportation Services May Speed Up Recovery Time

Every year, hundreds of people suffer non-life threatening injuries while working. As a result, non-emergency injured worker transportation vehicles are now being dispatched for patients.

A few days ago a man named John had sustained an injury while at work. John is never one to complain, but it was obvious that he was in a lot of pain; even if he claimed that he could walk on his own. His colleagues subsequently guided John to a waiting chair and helped him sit down.

Soon after, Medical personnel were called to assess John’s injury. Once they determined he needed further medical attention it was evident that John’s injury did not necessitate a ride to the hospital in an ambulance. Instead, a non-emergency injured worker transportation service, Comp-X Medical Management Services, was called. This transportation service was developed for people, like John, who require special medical treatment, but don’t need to get to a hospital quickly. Special employee services, like a ride to the medical facility, are what Comp-X Medical does best. The ride went smoothly, which was good because we realized later that John was in more pain than he originally let on.

While John is recovering from his injuries he is required to visit the doctor’s office three days a week. John heartily agreed that he would attend, but his lack mobility became a serious concern. His injury prevented him from driving until he had fully recovered and his wife needed to go to work.

As a result, Comp-X Medical Management Services’ non-emergency injured worker transportation service drove him to and from his appointments. While John may never mention this to his coworkers, he told me that he was immensely grateful that someone was there to look after him. He had considered taking a private car or taxi to his first few appointments, but having the ability to travel with a medical professional each time he goes to his rehab appointments was enormous benefit.

John was able to get back to work almost a month earlier than expected. While we can’t credit his transportation entirely to his early recovery, I feel that if he had to deal with a less suitable method of transportation, it could have impacted his recovery time in a negative manner.
