Monroe City Schools provides worker’s compensation benefits to employees who are injured at work. This benefit will cover only a work-related injury or illness, not other medical problems. Listed below are the steps for reporting a work-related injury.
Work-Related Injury Treatment Protocol
The Principal (or his/her designee) is to complete an Employer Report of Injury/Illness Form 1007 for every injury and fax the completed form to Ericka Cleveland, Insurance Coordinator @ 318-812-3602.
The Principal (or his/her designee) is to call Ms. Cleveland @ 325-0601, Extension 3017 for authorization to receive treatment at St. Francis Occupational Medicine. If she is not available, contact Ms. Reshemah Williams in Human Resources for authorization, at 325-0601, Ext. 3007.
It is recommended with every work-related injury that injured employees report to St. Francis Occupational Medicine (located on Tower Drive) IMMEDIATELY to seek medical treatment. Please note that this treatment will include a mandatory drug screen. Injured employees should report to:
St. Francis Occupational Medicine
St. Francis Community Health Center
2600 Tower Drive, Suite 304, Monroe, LA 71201
Phone: (318) 966-6320
Injured employees are to make sure that the attending physician addresses his/her “return-to-work” status and the exact date of injury. The “return-to-work” release may include returning to the Occupational Medicine Program for a follow-up visit (depending on the severity of the injury).
Injured employees are to notify their immediate supervisor and/or principal of all work-related restrictions (i.e., no heavy lifting or bending, inability to stand for long periods of time, etc.) recommended by the attending physician.
