There are no state laws requiring employers to have a clinic at the worksite or to keep a doctor or nurse on call to treat workplace injuries. However, the New Mexico health and safety code, which is identical to the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act, requires every private and public sector employer to ensure that medical personnel are readily available for advice and consultation and that when an infirmary, clinic, or hospital is not within close proximity to the workplace, there is an individual (or individuals) who are adequately trained to administer first aid. Employers are responsible for making decisions about the details of emergency medical care in their workplaces, depending upon the size, the kinds of hazards present, the history of accidents, and the costs of various options (NM Stat. Sec. 50-9-1et seq.).
There is additional information and a description of the basic elements of an effective medical treatment program.
