Occupational Exposure Hotline: Mitigate Workplace Risks

Fonemed's Occupational Exposure Hotline Provides Peace of Mind for any Business

We know the difference
between fear and facts.

Occupational Exposure Hotline

Fonemed’s URAC award–winning Occupational Exposure Hotline provides a 24/7 Nurse Advice Line to assist and comfort individuals who have been exposed to bodily fluids, communicable diseases or environmental exposures, including pandemics and bioterrorism. This program applies to individual exposures provided by the guidelines and standards of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control, and OSHA.

Specially trained nurses operate Fonemed’s proprietary health management software and more than 1,200 CDC protocols to assess the severity of an exposure, recommend the most appropriate course of treatment, and guide the caller to a post-exposure program when appropriate.

By providing clinical intervention shortly after an incident, we seek to avoid long-term consequences that frequently accompany occupational exposures, whether from a needle prick, communicable disease, or environmental hazard.
