Examination Services includes thorough examinations that focus on a new hire's ability to meet the requirements of a new position or a current employee's ability to do their job after an illness or injury. They include:
Post Offer / Pre-Employment: You have interviewed a potential new hire and you need to confirm that the employee is physically capable to do the work. These exams include: height, weight, blood pressure, vital signs, urinalysis, vision, range of motion, health history, environmental exposures, and occupational exposure history. These exams take approximately 1 hour.
DOT Physicals: The Federal Department of Transportation sets strict regulations for drivers' physicals. OMP provides DOT Physicals, following the guidelines established by the DOT.
Return to Work / Fit for Duty Exam: Have you had an employee who was off of work due to injury or surgery? They have been released by the surgeon to return to work, but are they physically prepared and healed enough to return to their job? If you provide the specifics of your employee's job requirements, we'll ensure your employee can safely return to their job or let you know if a limited capacity may be the best option.
Independent Medical Examination (IME): An Independent Medical Exam (IME) is an evaluation by a physician who is not involved in the medical treatment of an individual. They are highly detailed evaluations and are designed to answer questions regarding diagnosis, causation, treatment and permanent impairment. Dr. McClain is certified by the American Board of Independent Medical Examiners (ABIME) and has been doing such evaluations for over 13 years.
Impairment Ratings: According to the American Medical Association, an impairment is an alteration in an individual's health status. In the context of worker's compensation, this is usually due to an injury or illness. It is considered to be "permanent" if the condition is well stabilized and unlikely to change within the next year with or without medical treatment. OMP uses the AMA "Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment" to establish ratings. We use either the Fifth or Sixth Edition as requested.
Immigration Physicals: These exams require a complete physical, a review of needed vaccinations, TB skin test, perhaps Chest x-ray, and blood evaluation for HIV and Syphilis. In addition to these reviews, a history, Mini Mental status exam and Review of systems is completed. [US Citizen and Immigration Office]
