Preparing For Your First Appointment
The first appointment allows treatment staff to gather vital information on an injured worker’s medical history and current medical issue(s). To expedite the registration process and reduce waiting time in the reception area, we request that all new patients follow our First Appointment Checklist.
First Appointment Checklist – please bring in:
- Valid photo ID, such as a state driver’s license, state-issued ID card, and/or passport
- Medical records pertaining to the injury (copies will be made and the originals will be given back)
- Patient Intake form – complete to the best extent possible. A patient care coordinator (registered nurse or medical assistant) will review these forms with the new patient, as well as check their blood pressure, before starting the treatment evaluation.
To cancel or reschedule an appointment, please contact the center at 401-243-1200, option # 3. Please try to give notice of at least one day in advance, so that the open appointment time can be allocated to another injured worker.
Admission to the Arrigan Rehabilitation Center enables an injured worker to take direct steps toward recovery from his/her work-related injury. We need to emphasize that if treatment sessions are missed, progress is likely to be hindered. When an injured worker does not show up for a confirmed appointment, all parties (medical provider, insurer, TPA, attorney, etc.) are notified by a written missed-appointment letter.
