Ensuring Your Rights While Working with a Nurse Case Manager

If you’re injured at work, you may be assigned a nurse case manager. Nurse case managers can be a great resource in assisting you with your recovery. Usually they are very helpful, and can help ensure a smooth road to recovery. However, when working with a nurse case manager, it’s important that you know your rights.

Did you know that your nurse case manager is not permitted to talk with your doctor without your consent? Your nurse must notify you in advance and give you the option to be present for the appointment before meeting with your doctor. In addition, should you approve of their meeting without you, your nurse must provide you with a copy of the questions that they will be asking your doctor. These questions must be in writing and given to you at the same time they are presented to the doctor, making sure that you are informed of all information being passed between the doctor and your nurse regarding your case.

If you have any concerns that your nurse case manager is not respecting the boundaries of your arrangement, do not hesitate to set up an appointment with an attorney at Oxner + Permar to ensure that your rights are being protected.
