Managing the Employee on Transitional Duty

 

Many long-term care facilities provide modified or restricted duties to staff members who are partially disabled following a work-related injury or illness. These modified or restricted duties help to quickly and safety transition injured staff members back into the work place until they are able to resume full duty tasks. This practice is referred to as transitional duty. It is important to understand how a long-term care facility’s transitional duty program quickly and safely returns injured staff members to the work place. You must also understand your role in your facility’s transitional duty program.
