Questions & Answers from fellow Occupational health Nurses

 

Question: I am in the process of setting up a new occupational medicine clinic. I would really appreciate your opinion regarding equipment....audiometers, spirometers, EKG machines and vision testers.  What models/products are you using and would you recommend them or not?  If not, what model/product would you prefer?

  • Answers: I’m not impressed with Midmark spirometry. Optec and Titmus, are fine. Be sure to get software for your computer...let the computer do all your data storage for OSHA!

 

Question: Have you come across any books or places I could go to for P & P’s for NP’s practicing in an occupational health clinic?

  • Answers: Dr. Bonnie Rogers books will help the person looking for P & P’s.

 

Question: Can you put a feeler out to see what other medical Supply companies other places use (besides Moore)? 

 

Question: Does anyone have any information/protocols on monitoring employees that work from home regarding safety, ergonomic and other issues? (Ex., are they really working?) We will be increasing the number of employees with the ability to work from home and wondering how others manage this.

 

Question: Do you have any stats on RTW programs, temporary alternative duty programs, length of time an EE is out of work and the likelihood of his RTW?
