by Geronimo, Pauline B., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 53; 10116150
Abstract (Summary)

Nursing and residential care facilities have the second highest incidence rate of total non-fatal occupational injuries and illness cases among private industry employers due to tasks involving resident lifting and repositioning. This business plan proposes the establishment of a case management center named Actively Caring and Treating, which offers return-to-work services to nursing and residential care facilities located in Long Beach, California. These services aim to facilitate nursing and residential care facilities’ injured employees’ return-to-work process via telecommunication, such as telephone and videoconferencing. A return-to-work program with consistent follow-up such as Actively Caring and Treating, can reduce claims costs by getting the injured worker back on the job sooner through temporary modified duty. Actively Caring and Treating’s reputation will be built by utilizing a client-centered approach to treatment and establishing core values that are based on the Center’s goals—aiming to progressively return the injured worker to the workplace and improve their quality of life.
