Here is a case in point that has happened to more than one of my clients:

They leave an appointment with the nurse case manager still
there with the doctor, and get a call the next day from ther
employer saying they are fired because they didn’t show up
for work and that the doctor had released them to full duty.
The nurse case manager got the doctor to “adjust” the work
restrictions, gave it to the employer, and “forgot” to inform
the injured worker. Don’t forget, the nurse case manager is
working for the insurance company.
