Health care providers must recognize WorkSafeNB's role and responsibility to adhere to the requirements and principles of the Workers' Compensation Act in managing a worker's compensation claim.
It's the responsibility of health care providers to:
- Submit quality and timely clinical reports.
- Recognize the importance of the principle of early and safe return to work for injured workers to their overall well being.
- Be aware of their role in helping patients and their employers in a safe and early return to work and stay at work, as outlined in the Canadian Medical Association's policy and adopted by the New Brunswick Medical Society.
- Work co-operatively with WorkSafeNB staff to ensure that injured workers receive appropriate treatment.
