WorkPlace Medical Services (WMS) and REMSA Community Paramedics have partnered to provide on-site medical treatment of minor work injuries that fall under OSHA's definition of "First Aid."  By providing these servies to employers around the Reno/Sparks area WMS hopes to develop a trusting relationship with employers to help keep their employees working and safe!  WorkPlace Medical Services and REMSA will do this by following the rules governed by OSHA and the NRS:
   
Nevada's definition of "first aid" is a single treatment and any follow-up visit for the purpose of observation of minor scratches, cuts, burns, splinters, and other injuries that do not ordinarily require medical care, even if the treatment or visit is provided by a physician or registered healthcare professional (NV Admin. Code 618.5506).

OSHA's deinition 1904.7(b)(5)(ii) of "first aid" refers to medical attention that is usually administered immediately after the injury occurs and at the location where it occurred.  First aid can include cleaning minor cuts, scrapes, or scratches; treating a minor burn; applying bandages and dressings; the use of non-prescription medicine; draining blisters; removing debris from the eyes; massage; and drinking fluids to relieve heat stress. OSHA's revised recordkeeping rule, which went into effect January 1, 2002, does not require first aid cases to be documented. For example: A worker goes to the first-aid room and has a dressing applied to a minor cut by a registered nurse. Although the registered nurse is a health care professional, the employer does not have to report the accident because the worker simply received first aid.

By following these definitions and rules WMS and REMSA can provide professional medical treatment of most injuries at the jobsite, which will take the guess work out injury evaluation and treatment for employers.  WMS and REMSA will provide the proper "first-aid" care to your employees so they feel that they have been taken care of properly and they can go back to work safely.
