OccMedCIC, LLC is actively monitoring the evolving COVID-19 pandemic and providing critical consulting services to essential service providers.
Navigate to our COVID-19 web page for more information.
3/25/2020 Clinical Availability Update:
OccMedCIC will continue to support our clients as needed and adhere to the following guidelines:
- OccMedCIC does not evaluate or treat ill workers
- Our reduced clinical schedule will be staffed by a skeleton crew
- Strict adherance to social distancing by limiting patient volume in waiting room and using N95 masks
- When seeing a patient face-to-face the staff and provider will be wearing N95 respirator with the windows open.
Regarding new work injuries, client companies must call ahead to schedule an evaluation. If an essential service worker who is not ill but injured, e.g., laceration, requires hands-on face-to-face care, then OccMedCIC should be a safer option (less potential Covid 19 exposure) compared to other health care venues such as the Emergency Department. Depending on Public Health Directives, providers and staff may be on-call, i.e., pulled into office as necessary.
OccHealth Services like PreEmployment and FAA exams for essential service providers may be available in person or remotely. Please call to inquire.
Please note: We did explore performing Covid 19 test sample collection ourselves but learned we cannot at this time due to lack of available sample collection material. Again, we will not be evaluating or treating workers with suspected Covid 19 face-to-face. Rather, we remotely evaluate employee's symptoms, exposure level and/or ability to work.
Please stay safe, practice social distancing, wash your hands and call us if you have questions about keeping your workplace safe,
John W. Burress, MD, MPH, FACOEM
