Company Nurse

Company Nurse, a nurse hotline for workplace injuries, expanded its presence in Texas, adding account management staff to serve the Dallas, Ft. Worth, Houston and surrounding areas.

Company Nurse was developed to help reduce workers’ compensation costs for employers and streamline the claims administration costs, especially for public entities and schools. Nationwide, Company Nurse helps more than 1,000 school districts reduce workers’ comp costs.

Company Nurse operates under a triage nurse system. When a workplace injury occurs, employees and supervisors call Company Nurse to report the injury and to speak with a triage nurse. Triage nurses get involved at the front-end of the claims process and identify the right level of care – whether it’s simple first aid, an occupational clinic, or emergency care.
