Work-Related Illness and Injury
Employees who suffer a work-related illness/injury should immediately report the injury to their supervisor. The following is the process for seeking medical care:
Supervisors are to immediately call an ambulance (9-1-1) if the illness/injury is a critical emergency. The ambulance driver will transport the individual to the nearest medical facility available for treatment.
When the illness/injury is not critical, the supervisor is to complete the Authorization to Invoice MSU form (or this form for outside of Lansing area) and, effective October 1, 2015, direct the employee to Lansing Urgent Care.
