Defining Onsite Nursing and Medical Staff

Onsite nurses, nurse practitioners (NPs), and physician assistants refer to medical professionals stationed in the workplace itself as opposed to offsite clinics. They may operate from a small on-premises health office, converting conference room or mobile unit going directly to on-the-job employees.

These onsite providers conduct occupational healthcare such as emergency first aid, injury/illness evaluations, preventative screenings, health education, and critical incident stress management. As extensively trained medical experts embedded at the worksite, they can provide faster, more convenient access to quality care for the company’s staff.
