WorkCompRecap: Countering Catastrophics!

Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features Washington’s Department of Labor & Industries’ announcement that it is working with Harborview Medical Center on a Center of Excellence for medical care for amputees that aims to provide focused care for the most traumatic on-the-job amputations

Harborview is part of UW Medicine, and workers with amputations can now have their ongoing medical care managed by UW Medicine physicians and staff, receiving a more coordinated level of care. The new effort is part of L&I’s initiative to improve care for catastrophic injuries, and it plans to establish additional centers of excellence for burns, head and spinal cord injuries, and multiple trauma/crush injuries.
