Nevada Restaurant Self-Insured Group Launches 24-Hour Injury Hotline on September 1 to Ensure Employee Safety

-- CHSI Solutions Hotline Provides NRSIG Members Immediate Medical Assessment --

LAS VEGAS, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Beginning September 1, 2009, employees of Nevada Restaurant Self-Insured Group members injured on the job will be able to get an immediate injury assessment from a medical professional when they call the CHSI Solutions Hotline.

The CHSI Solutions Hotline will be available to NRSIG members and their employees all day, every day. When a workplace accident occurs, a quick and simple phone call to the CHSI Solutions Hotline will connect the caller directly to a registered nurse who can offer an immediate evaluation of the injury, specify what first-aid procedure is appropriate, or advise off-site medical attention.

NRSIG Board President Tom Arlt said, "I am thrilled that our members and their employees will now be able to use the CHSI Solutions Hotline to expedite the assessment of workplace accidents. When an employee gets hurt, it can be a stressful time for our members and their employees. Having immediate contact with a medical professional will help employees get the medical help they need and free our members' staffs to ensure the workplace is secure and safe."

The CHSI Solutions Hotline provides NRSIG members with:

  • Immediate around-the-clock (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) access to a staff of registered nurses who can make clinical decisions regarding appropriate first aid for injured employees or whether further medical attention is needed
  • Multilingual translators to assist non-English speaking employees
  • Directory of pre-approved providers for off-site referrals
  • Prompt injury reporting to NRSIG member and designated recipients, as well as information downloading into the CHSI claims system

CHSI Senior Executive Vice President Joe Burgess explained, "CHSI is always looking to provide our SIG clients with programs and procedures that will assist them in making their workplaces safe and secure. We have shown time and again, that a safe workplace is a profitable workplace for employers and employees. The CHSI Hotline Solutions provides just that."

With the launch of the CHSI Solutions Hotline, NRSIG members will also see a reduction in both costly medical expenses associated with unnecessary off-site care and lost productivity. A call to the CHSI Solution Hotline takes second-guessing out of the workplace injury equation.

In addition to immediate medical response, NRSIG members can call the CHSI Solutions Hotline for advice after a crisis, such as a break-in or robbery, to anonymously report workplace fraud or for any additional customer service needs. The CHSI Solutions Hotline does not submit claims and is not a Third Party Administrator.
