Incidents Involving Employees
If a worker gets injured while on the job they are encouraged to seek medical attention, if necessary. When the injury is of a serious nature, this can be done by calling the UM-Dearborn Department of Public Safety at 313-593-5333 from a mobile phone or 911 from a campus phone. UM-Dearborn Public Safety will administer first aid and request for an ambulance to send the employee to a local ER if the injury warrants such a response.
If the injury is not serious (mildly sprained ankle, etc.), the employee should contact their supervisor, and follow the injury reporting process, below. If the cause if the injury is a safety issue that others may injure themselves similarly (i.e., broken concrete, ice on the sidewalk, missing/ loose handrail in a stairwell), UM-Dearborn Public Safety should be notified to write up an incident report. The report will initiate corrective actions by generating a Facilities Operations work order. EHS will become involved when notified of the unsafe condition by the police.
For all non-emergency (non-life threatening) assessments and /or medical treatments, direct the employee (faculty or staff) to Concentra Medical Center, 17500 Federal Drive, Ste. 750, Allen Park, MI (313-982-1370). This is the assigned clinic for all work-related injuries for the University of Michigan-Dearborn and it provides medical services from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday thru Friday.
During after-hours and weekends, direct employee (faculty or staff) to Concentra Medical Center, 11700 Metro Airport Center Drive, Ste. 104, Romulus, MI (734-955-7000). this is a 24 hour, 7 days a week clinic.
Your supervisor will need to complete a Concentra Authorization for Examination or Treatment Form for you to be treated. Take this completed form with you. If you go to the clinic without a form, the clerk will need to call your supervisor for a verbal authorization and a form will need to be faxed or scanned/ emailed to the clinic for treatment to be approved.
If treatment for your injury cannot wait, please go to Henry Ford Medical Center - Fairlane Emergency Room if you require immediate care. UM-Dearborn Department of Public Safety will assist by contacting EMS to transport you to the ER. Paperwork can be completed after you are treated in this instance.
