Workers' Compensation

  •  

    Step One:

    • If this is an emergency or life-threatening, call 911.
    • Report the incident to the campus nurse or to immediate supervisor if the nurse is unavailable.

    Step Two:

    • Injured person or nurse will complete the injury report and submit.
    • There is a list of authorized clinics on the MISD website; one of those should be chosen.
    • Please call Kelcie Griggs (ext 1136) prior to going to Urgent Care so she can call ahead and authorize care. NOVA has pre-authorization on file. 

    Step Three:

    • The physician will examine the employee and advise as to when he/she can return to work.  The physician will complete a Texas Workers’ Compensation Work Status Report and provide a copy to the employee and the District.
    • If there is a follow-up appointment, it is the employee’s responsibility to go or run the risk of the claim being denied.

    Employees refusing medical care:

    If the administrator in charge believes there is a possible injury but the employee does not believe he/she needs medical attention, MISD cannot force the employee to seek medical attention.  However, the administrator should still complete the First Report of Injury.
