Experience Matters in Restoring Lives
Kayla Payne, RN, BSN, CCM
Prior to becoming a case manager, Kayla Payne had worked as an emergency department (ED) nurse in one of the busiest EDs in her state. As a catastrophic care case manager, she regularly is assigned to injured employees who are transferred to the same ED. Her experiences dealing with traumatic injuries there have prepared her to manage the most critical workplace injuries, while Payne’s relationships with former ED medical colleagues allow her to quickly gather and report necessary information to adjusters to initiate treatment plans.
