Required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers, Department of Transportation Physical testing is provided to ensure both personal & public safety.
Describe the details of your workplace incident to qualify for insurance benefits and reduce your liability for work-related injuries & illnesses. Please inform your employer of the incident beforehand.
Non Federal rapid drug testing provides results in as little as 10 minutes. For Federal or Non-Federal Drug Screens, employers can set up a company account by answering a few quick questions.
The Department of Transportation (D.O.T.) and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) require that any employee deemed “safety-sensitive” — which means that their job performance can have an impact on the general public — need to be tested to ensure their suitability for the position. Drivers of commercial motor vehicles (CMV) fall within this category, and need to be tested every 24 months.
The 5-part test consists of vision & hearing screening, blood pressure & pulse rate testing, urinalysis, and a physical examination. At North Smithfield Urgent Care, one of our doctors will perform all parts of the examination and provide official certification for the Department of Transportation.
When an injury or illness is suffered in the workplace, your private insurance has the right to deny the claim on the basis that the compensation is the duty of the employer. By filing with North Smithfield Urgent Care, employees may become eligible for workman’s compensation, which can pay for their medical bills and rehabilitation costs, as well as partial lost wages.
Filing for workman’s compensation is a quick and easy process, but the employer must be informed of the injury beforehand. Once all necessary parties have been informed of the situation, the patient can fill out the necessary forms and then be evaluated by one of our specialists, who will provide official, credible documentation of the injury type & severity.
Federal & Non-Federal drug screening are performed on the federal chain of custody, and and sent to a medical review officer for an official interpretation. Most testing is done through companies that have registered accounts with North Smithfield Urgent Care, which allows the company the benefit of a 30-day pay period from the time the testing is performed.
Our rapid testing allows patients to quickly get results within 5 to 10 minutes. At the low cost of $5 per test, patients can set up an appointment for the quick, non-invasive test.
North Smithfield Urgent Care also offers Pulmonary Function tests (PFT) and Breath Alcohol testing (BAT). Based on current CDC standards however, we are advised against performing either of these aerosolizing tests due to COVID-19. If you urgently require this form of testing, please contact us.
