I work for the largest employer on the southern Oregon coast.   We do not do a physical exam.

I was hoping to get some input from other medical facilities on this. When I arrived at my current job, the Employee Health team had not been doing provider physical exams for pre-placement medical evals for the hospital; we take a medical history, assess vaccinations, etc, and do a nursing assessment (vitals and vision test). Having come from the military, with a different approach to these things, I was a bit surprised.

I am now working on a re-write of the policy for new hires, and am debating whether to include a provider physical exam. What are other medical facilities doing? Is there a physical exam with every new hire evaluation, only in certain cases, or not at all?

Thanks for any inputs!
