Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need an Annual Health Assessment (AHA)?
The AHA is required annually by the NYS Department of Health for all health care personnel. This is done every year in each employee’s month of birth and is for the purpose of determining that you are free from health impairments which could pose a risk to you, patients or co-workers.
What is included in my annual health assessment?
The AHA is a review of your health status. There is a questionnaire related to TB screening, we will take your height, weight, blood pressure, temperature and perform a review of your immunization history. If you are a patient-facing employee, you will be asked to complete a Respiratory Suitability questionnaire and a Fit Test will be required.
Additionally, during the AHA the employee health office will provide information on health related topics, including our EAP program, what to do if injured at work (Worker’s Compensation PPO program) and can help you with a referral to a primary care provider if you would like one.
Where and when do I go for my annual health assessment?
You should schedule an appointment for an AHA during your birth month with the Employee Health Office.
Both EHOs use a system called Clockwise to book appointments. EHO hours are listed above along with the link to schedule.
I used to be able to just walk in…can I still walk in?
Yes, but scheduled appointments will be given first priority.
I was out of work for 7 consecutive days. I am returning to work. What should I do?
After 7 days of being out due to illness or injury, before returning to work you must report to an Employee Health Office with a return to work note from a provider with specific instructions for restrictions or limitations (if any). The staff will perform a return to work assessment and/or a complete AHA if one is due at the time.
Return to work Drug Testing is no longer required at UHS.
