MCCCD started a pilot nurse triage program with GCC and MCC, in which an employee with non-life threatening injuries, such as sprains, strains, minor lacerations, abrasions and contusions, calls a triage nurse at Triage Now, rather than going to a medical clinic for treatment.
What is TriageNow?
Triage Now is a nurse hotline dedicated to MCCCD workplace injuries. The nurse will gather information about the injury and either give instructions for care on site or refer you to a clinic for advanced care.
This program has been very successful, providing quality, immediate care to employees, while saving production time for the campus due to shorter wait times at clinics and cost savings for the District.
**Please note, if advanced care is needed, TriageNow will send the employee to the nearest Concentra Medical Center (CMC), U.S. HealthWorks Medical Walk In Center (HW MWI) or FastMed Urgent Care for initial treatment of the injury.**
