All employees (e.g., part-time, full-time, or student employees) must report their injury immediately to their supervisor, Campus Director (Tel. #787-773-6501) and/or NSU's Workers' Compensation Manager Finance (Tel. # 954-262-5404) in writing. The supervisor or Campus Director will complete the "Work Accident Report," i.e., the CFSE 02-041 (CFSE-0373) junio/2015 form. The injured worker must file a claim with the State Insurance Fund Corporation (CFSE) within a term of five (5) days after the accident occurred. If an employee is injured more than five days ago, still notify your supervisor and the Workers' Compensation Manager Finance in writing as soon as possible. The CFSE-0373 form will be forwarded to the Workers' Compensation Manager Finance who will then file it electronically on the PRSIFC's web site.
Medical Treatment (non-emergency)

These services are offered at the regional, intermediate, and local clinics, as well as at the Industrial Hospital. Nova employees are instructed to go to the emergency room at
An independent contractor is not typically covered. Supervisors should check with the Workers' Compensation Manager Finance if a contractor reports an injury.
Seek medical care at the nearest hospital immediately or Hospital Industrial.
If injured on the job you are entitled to mileage reimbursement for the cost of travel to doctor's appointments, physical therapy appointments, and to the pharmacy to pick up prescriptions related to the injury.
