Annual Physicals of Fire Fighters
We are preparing to conduct annual health physicals of our Fire Fighters'. In our procrocess over the past few years, we have found that many hours are accumulated filling out paperwork in the doctors' office, so we chose to have our department handle the paperwork in house. This would have it ready when the Fire Fighter walks into the doctors' office. Since doing this, we have people complaining that they are being forced to hand over personal information to co-workers who are collecting the completed forms. These forms have general information about the individuals who fill them out, along with past medical history, including whether there is any conserns and or medications. Is there a specific process of handling these forms should go through, or is it fine to do the way we are? When they are collected they are in manilla envelopes, but not sealable, and collected and transfered by other Fire Fighters'.
