1. Employee Health Services (EHS) follows all University of California Davis, Health System  (UCDHS) Worker’s Compensation cases (except for employee’s who have pre-designated to Human Resources, in writing, an alternate Primary Treating Physician) for at least the first 30 days after an injury has been reported.  EHS is open from 7AM to 4 PM Monday through Friday.   The Mercy Medical located on 3000 Q Street is our designated back up clinic that will see W/C injuries after 4 PM without an appointment.  Our established contract with them is to treat you one time.  All follow up appointments are done in at EHS.  If seen at this clinic, you are required to call EHS to make a follow up appointment and bring a copy of the Med Status report given to you for your supervisors.   After hours when EHS is closed our phone message (916 - 734 – 3572) will give hours of operation, phone number and address of the Mercy Medical.  This clinic is open until 10 PM including weekends and holidays.
  2. UCDHS employees presenting to the ED triage station should only be seen for life, limb or organ threatening injuries.  All other cases should be referred to the Med Clinic, or EHS, that or the following day.  Information pertaining to the management of acute pain and strain injuries is available at our EHS website
