Don Dressler Consulting is Honored To Introduce
Judy Lindemann, RN, FNP, MSN
Accomplished healthcare business and clinical professional,
Judy Lindemann will be writing ongoing "Advocate" articles
for BOTTOM LINE. Judy's experience as a Masters Prepared Nurse Practitioner provides the well-rounded knowledge base necessary to navigate the Worker's Compensation system - supporting both the employer and employee.
The real-life articles will convey brief 'case studies' of her experiences in helping employers and their employees
evolve through their experiences on the following topics:
- Worker's Compensation Consulting
- Accident Investigation
- Injured Worker Followup - from injury to return to full duty
- Ergonomic Evaluation for businesses
"It is really all about finding out what each particular employee needs to get well and then helping them successfully meet that need. Every case is different just as every injured worker has different needs." Lindemann said. "Some injured workers have simple needs - such as making sure that they have a translator for their visits. If they cannot understand what their doctor tells them, their frustration level can rise from 0-100 in a minute; overtime they become disenchanted with their care and are more likely to file a lawsuit."
"There are cases where employees don't follow their doctor's instructions and do not show up for their visits. In these cases I discover that the clinic assigned to them is too far from their home or work and they just stop going. I help them change to another clinic that is closer to work or home, which generally makes them much more likely to comply with their prescribed therapy treatments," Lindemann concluded.
We look forward to hearing from you about your experiences. Remember that we are interested in helping injured employees get back to work quickly; and we do this by getting involved as early as possible following an injury. This helps the employee as well as helping the employer's bottom line.
