CCH December 2017 Department Discovery: Occupational Case Management

CCH December 2017 Department Discovery: Occupational Case Management

The Campbell County Health December 2017 Department Discovery shines a light on the Campbell County Health Occupational Case Management department.

Healthy businesses are vital to the growth and prosperity of Campbell County. When an employee suffers an injury at work it can negatively impact a business. That’s where Case Management can help.

“It’s our priority to ensure proper treatment is received and get injured workers back on the job as quickly, and safely, as possible,” says Vanda Cathey, RN, Occupational Nurse Case Manager.

The team is small, but mighty: Occupational Nurse Case Managers, Miranda Erisman, RN, and Vanda, along with Jamie Mooney, Employee Safety Coordinator.

Essentially, Case Management guides employees at CCH, and other organizations in the community, through the injury care process—from onset of injury or illness, to safe return to work or optimal health. Case Management is designed to provide a streamlined process for the injured employee, employer and healthcare providers.

“We fill the gap between physicians, patients and employers while facilitating safe and timely return to work, which results in cost savings,” says Jamie.

This team is also in charge of implementing preventative measures, including overseeing the non-slip shoe program, and other safety measures throughout Campbell County Health.

Not many people know but for the past several years, Case Management has received a grant from the Marna M. Kuehne Foundation to assist veterans within Campbell, Crook and Weston Counties. “We use the money received to help veterans with travel, dental, vision and other medical expenses for which the Veterans Administration has disparities,” says Vanda.

According to Miranda, the best part of this team is how well they all work together. “Being a small department of three, we rely on each other through teamwork and communication to provide the best services, not only to our employees but to our community as well,” she says.

A big round of applause to the Occupational Case Management Team! Thanks for helping to keep our patients happy and healthy. Learn more about the team at www.cchwyo.org/casemgt.
