Whether you choose to seek medical treatment for an injury or not, you are required to call the Nurse Triage Line at 833-928-6877 to submit an accident report. Once your report is submitted, it will be sent to your supervisor for review and investigation of the incident or accident.

If you are unable to work due to your work injury, or need accommodations, also contact PSD Work Injury- workinjury@puyallup.k12.wa.us immediately to discuss your status and next steps.  If you are not able to work, you are required to complete a time loss election form, which must be submitted electronically to PSD Work Injury and Payroll  within 7 days of injury date.  If you are a PEA or PESPA member, you will complete this time loss election form. If you have questions about your options, please visit our FAQ page or contact PSD Work Injury. All completed forms can be scanned and emailed to workinjury@puyallup.k12.wa.us.  

NOTE: You may choose your own doctor/medical provider for your first treatment visit. However, ongoing treatment of your injury must be from a State approved Occupational Medical Provider.
