Walk-in Workers Comp Urgent Care Clinic With Convenient NJ Locations
AM/PM Walk-In Urgent Care works with businesses to provide high-quality care for employees who get hurt on the job and replaces the need to visit the emergency room. Our walk-in services allow us to diagnose and treat injuries quickly and efficiently in a friendly environment made up of experienced medical professionals. We have offices in Bergenfield, Cliffside Park, North Bergen, Norwoord, Englewood, and Allendale. No appointment necessary.
If an employee sustains a life-threatening injury, the emergency room is where they should go right away. However, in any other scenario, our urgent care will be able to assess health and injury situations and you won’t have to deal with long waits that often occur in the ER. A relationship between a business and urgent care can take away a lot of the headache that comes with worker’s compensation and workplace injury treatment.
Most Common Workers Compensation Injuries
While there are all sorts of injuries that can occur while at work, there are a few that we deal with frequently. The most common workers’ compensation injuries include:
- Lacerations – Deep cuts or tears in flesh or skin. This is common because lacerations can happen to workers in nearly any industry. They are especially frequent in restaurants and other food preparation jobs. Manufacturing and machine shops also see an especially high amount of lacerations.
- Sprains and strains – A sprain is a stretched or torn ligament, while a strain is a stretched or torn muscle or tendon. Again, this can occur at any job, as tripping and falling can happen anywhere. Even jobs with no physical labor can lead to sprains and strains with something as simple as using the stairs.
- Contusions – More commonly called bruises, contusions are from injuries under the skin where the blood is trapped under the surface. This will typically result in a purple or blue color under the skin. This happens frequently in industries that require moving or dealing with heavy objects.
- Burns – Injuries to tissues caused by heat, chemicals, electricity, steam, sunlight, or radiation
- Eye Injuries – Eye protection should be worn in settings where there is an increased likelihood of chemical, environmental, and radiological hazards or mechanical irritants. In spite of these eye protection guidelines, eye injuries are common.
