Can You Receive Workers' Compensation Benefits for PTSD? A Workers' Compensation Lawyer Elaborates

Saffren and Weinberg - Personal Injury Attorneys

Jenkintown's Marc Weinberg of Saffren & Weinberg has been handling workers' compensation cases for decades.

Workers often think that PTSD is not something they can have or that it is not covered because it is not a discrete, single accident or illness.”

— Marc Weinberg, Partner

JENKINTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, July 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Workers’ compensation provides important benefits, like medical care and compensation for missed work and lost wages, for people who suffer from work-related injuries or illnesses. Workers are not always aware that this coverage expands beyond simple physical injury like a fall at work. Workers’ compensation claims can be for a wide variety of traumatic events, injuries, and illnesses, like chemical exposure and work stress-related medical problems.

One commonly overlooked illness that workers may be entitled to file a workers’ compensation claim for is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, more commonly referred to by the acronym PTSD. Workers often think that PTSD is not something they can have or that it is not covered because it is not a discrete, single accident or illness.

The following information provides a general overview to clear up some of the misconceptions about workers’ compensation for PTSD:

Understanding PTSD

The National Institution of Health (“NIH”) describes PTSD as a mental health condition or disorder, comprised of a number of different types of symptoms, that some people develop after experiencing a “shocking, scary, or dangerous event.” The duration and severity of PTSD vary from person to person as does the triggering event.

The triggering event leading to PTSD does not have to have an immediate negative physical impact on the person. For example, someone might suffer from PTSD after the sudden death of a close family member or after a home invasion even though they were not physically harmed.

There is no single list of symptoms for PTSD and there are many different physical and psychological symptoms that PTSD can cause, ranging from vivid flashbacks to being easily scared to uncharacteristic bursts of anger to vomiting. The many PTSD symptoms are divided into four different categories: re-experiencing symptoms, avoidance symptoms, arousal and reactivity symptoms, and cognitive mood symptoms. A PTSD diagnosis usually requires at least one symptom in each category and continuation of symptoms for at least one month.

PTSD Affects Everyday Individuals

One common misconception about PTSD is that it only impacts war veterans. The most publically known and severe cases of PTSD have been in relation to war veterans, police officers, first responders and others who engage in daily activities that routinely put them into traumatic events. There is an epidemic of PTSD in this country among veterans, but everyday individuals from construction workers to customer service reps at an insurance company may also suffer from PTSD. It is a mental illness that can be exacerbated by a workplace incident and turn into a long term workplace injury.

It is not uncommon for PTSD symptoms to be overlooked or downplayed because the individual does not think they could suffer from it or that their trauma or psychological injury was bad enough. This is not the case. PTSD is a very serious medical condition that can continue to worsen and negatively impact an individual’s health and well-being if untreated. If you think there is a possibility that you are suffering, you should take steps to obtain medical treatment immediately.

Workplace-Related PTSD

Once PTSD is understood, it is easy to see how workplace events and environments can cause PTSD. There are two different ways that PTSD can arise from work: (1) Something scary, traumatic, or dangerous happens at work leading to PTSD from the event; or (2) Something scary, traumatic, or dangerous occurs outside of work but was triggered by something at work. No matter the exact cause of the PTSD, it must be “work-related” to be covered by workers’ compensation and qualify someone for disability benefits. A company's insurance carrier will need medical evidence to verify you are an injured worker entitled to workers' comp benefits.

PTSD arises from a person’s natural, but harmful, reaction to an event, not from the harm the event itself causes. Accordingly, both persons harmed in traumatic workplace events and those who are not harmed by the event itself but by their reaction to it may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits from PTSD.

All situations are unique and warrant review by an experienced work injury lawyer, however, the following are a few examples of common types of workers’ compensation claims based on PTSD that have succeeded:

Witnessing a Violent Death at Work – PTSD often arises after a person has witnessed a violent death in the workplace. It is common in law enforcement officers who are exposed to violence as a part of their job. Unfortunately, other professions like teachers and administrators sometimes experience violence, in the form of shootings, at work as well and may suffer from PTSD as a result.

Injury in a Traumatic Work Accident – Actual injury resulting from a workplace accident can lead to PTSD in addition to the other physical harm caused by the accident. For example, a worker that suffers from a severed thumb when a piece of machinery malfunctions may continue to suffer from PTSD from the trauma of the event long after they have obtained the maximum medical recovery of their thumb and hand.

Witnessing a Traumatic Work Accident – As noted above, it is not just being injured at work that can lead to PTSD. Persons who observe a serious traumatic accident at work, like a co-worker suffering from a limb dismemberment, may also suffer from PTSD as a result and, if they do, they are entitled to pursue workers’ compensation as well.

A Near-Miss that Could Have Resulted in Death or Serious Harm – Even if no one is harmed, a situation that almost results in serious bodily harm or death is a common cause of PTSD symptoms in those present at the event. For example, a shooting that occurs at work where the assailant misses all shots could cause those present to experience PTSD symptoms after the event. Or another example, a portion of a building collapses on a construction site and narrowly misses falling on workers could lead to PTSD in the nearby workers.

Being Trapped – Mine workers, or any other worker that is trapped in a confined space at work, may suffer from PTSD as a result even if no physical harm occurred. This type of confinement is a very traumatizing event for many people.

PTSD Alone Not Enough for Workers’ Compensation

Unfortunately, merely suffering from work-related PTSD is not enough to obtain workers’ compensation. The PTSD must be severe enough to impair your ability to fulfill your job duties. If you are suffering from work-related PTSD but still able to function at 100% of your former level at work, you probably will not be able to obtain workers’ compensation for your PTSD. However, for your future health and well-being, you should still make sure to be seen by a medical provider to obtain treatment for your PTSD.

Pursuing a Workplace Related PTSD Claim

As with all workers’ compensation claims, when pursuing your PTSD claim, it is important to obtain medical evaluation and diagnosis regarding your PTSD claims, provide your employer with notice of your claims (which can be trickier since PTSD cannot always be tracked to an exact start date), and to complete all required employer and government paperwork.

PTSD workers’ compensation claims are some of the more difficult claims to pursue because of the nature of the disorder and the fact that the law on the issue is still evolving and not always clear. For this reason, it is usually prudent to find a work injury lawyer to help ensure you don’t lose the opportunity to obtain the benefits you are entitled to.

How Does a Hospital Stay Open When Its Water Supply is Cut?

The first time a Utah hospital used an emergency water filtration system was a success

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, July 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Early Saturday morning, July 14, flash flood waters that ran over the site of the 2017 Brian Head fire in Utah overwhelmed and contaminated the spring water collection boxes that feed into the Panguitch, Utah culinary water system. It caused the rural city of 1,800 to declare an immediate "No Water Use" order for culinary water. What that meant is: absolutely no water use, even if boiled.

What did this mean for 14-bed Intermountain Garfield Memorial Hospital, managed by Utah’s Intermountain Healthcare system, who used the city's culinary water? Water is used in so many ways inside a hospital, not just for drinking or bathing. There’s food preparation, dishwashing, laundry services, hand washing, and sterilization of instruments.

The Intermountain Healthcare Emergency Preparedness team was ready. They immediately responded to the notification, putting into action the water disruption emergency response plan for the hospital. The hospital needed both bottled water and filtrated water, and not knowing how long the “No Water Use” order would be in place, also needed water filtration systems.

The Southwest Utah Healthcare Preparedness Coalition was contacted for help. This coalition is comprised of healthcare representatives from five southwest Utah counties, and includes six hospitals, three of which are Intermountain hospitals. This coalition was formed to pool knowledge, resources, and support in case of emergencies. The Coalition had used federal grant funds to purchase low and high-density water filtration systems. Neither filtration system had ever been made fully operational, but coalition members had previously trained on how to use them. These filtration systems were transported to Intermountain Garfield Memorial.

By 3 p.m. Saturday afternoon, the filtration systems were fully hooked up, filtering water through a four-stage process. Before the filtrated water was used, a water sample was taken by the local health department and tested to make sure the filtration system was functioning properly. The testing showed the water was clean and safe to use, so the filtrated water was used for drinking, handwashing, bathing and food service operations.

Thousands of bottles of water were sent from other Intermountain hospitals as well as food service items like disposable plates, cups, bowls and cutlery, as dishwashers couldn’t be used.

Intermountain Garfield Memorial's chef created six-day food plans for all the inpatient, caregiver and long-term care residents, and coordinated how foods would be prepared and managed without use of culinary water.

Another issue to solve was laundry services. Intermountain Garfield Memorial washes their laundry on-site. Another rural facility, Intermountain Sevier Valley Hospital (about 100 miles away) coordinated with Intermountain Garfield Memorial to do their laundry, keeping the hospital supplied with clean linens.

Sunday afternoon, July 15, Panguitch City moved from the "No Use Water" order to "Boil Water" order. But the "Boil Water" order did not mean it was yet okay to use the culinary water system at the hospital. Even though the water could be boiled for use elsewhere in the city, the hospital still only used bottled or filtrated water.

The "Boil Water" order for Panguitch was lifted on Wednesday, July 18. At this point, it was time to fully clean the hospital's water system. The process was a highly systematic, thorough one. Water was fully drained out of pipes, filled with chlorinated water, allowed to sanitize for several hours, then fully flushed out of the system. Once that was done, the water was tested once again to ensure it was clean and safe.

Alberto Vasquez, administrator at Intermountain Garfield Memorial, said, "I am so proud of our team and how our hospital has responded. When a hospital has never experienced something like this before in our state, it's hard to know what to expect and there are so many elements that must be considered and handled proactively for the safety of all. And having been able to ensure the safety of all has been a testament to the above-and-beyond attitude of all involved, along with the training, foresight, and everyone working together."

Intermountain Healthcare is a Utah-based not-for-profit system of 22 hospitals, 170 clinics, a Medical Group with about 2,300 employed physicians and advanced practice clinicians, a health plans group called SelectHealth, and other medical services. Intermountain is widely recognized as a leader in transforming healthcare through high quality and sustainable costs. For more information about Intermountain, visit www.intermountainhealthcare.org.

THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA AND CUREMETRIX COLLABORATE ON NEXT-GENERATION AI FOR MEDICAL IMAGING

Dr. Anthony Mancuso, Professor and Chairman, Department of Radiology, University of Florida College of Medicine

This affiliation provides an opportunity to educate radiology residents on developments in using AI in medical imaging and its focus on advancement in the delivery of health care.”

— Dr. Anthony Mancuso

SAN DIEGO, CA, USA, July 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — CureMetrix®, a company developing investigational, physics-based artificial intelligence and deep-learning software to help radiologists achieve more accurate readings of breast images, signed an agreement with the University of Florida to collect five years of anonymized images and clinical data to continue developing best-in-class computer-aided detection (CAD) tools for mammographers. As part of the agreement, the University of Florida will be using the CureMetrix software in an educational and investigational setting to continue evaluating its impact.

“The key to developing the most effective artificial intelligence (AI) software lies in our ability to curate high-quality data to properly train and validate the algorithm. We are thrilled to have a collaboration with the university’s academic health center, which is at the forefront of clinical care to help us usher in the next era of AI products in medical imaging. Our goal continues to be to develop a CAD that works to improve outcomes for patients and hospitals,” stated Kevin Harris, Chief Executive Officer of CureMetrix.

The University of Florida is one of the nation’s top research universities and currently offers state-of-the-art technology in breast imaging.

“This affiliation provides an opportunity to educate radiology residents on developments in using AI in medical imaging and its focus on advancement in the delivery of health care. It is an exciting collaboration and has the potential to help us continue to maintain the highest standard of care possible as we aim to improve clinical efficiency and patient outcomes,” said Anthony Mancuso, M.D., a professor and chair of the Department of Radiology in the UF College of Medicine.

CureMetrix currently has two investigational products for digital mammography, cmAssist®, a physics-based CAD software that identifies and quantifies regions of interest and cmTriage™, a worklist sorting and optimization tool for the prioritization of studies based on suspicious regions of interest. The company is currently conducting clinical trials to submit both solutions to the FDA in upcoming months.

With data from the University of Florida, CureMetrix will continue developing a CAD software for 3D tomosynthesis.

For more information about how to collaborate with CureMetrix as a data partner or a clinical study site, please contact clinicalstudies@curemetrix.com or visit http://curemetrix.com/about/our-team/.

About CureMetrix
CureMetrix® was founded in 2014 on the belief that better medical image analysis technology could lead to better outcomes for breast cancer patients. The company is developing investigational, physics-based artificial intelligence and deep learning solutions to help radiologists achieve more accurate readings of breast images. Through its research partnerships with leading hospital radiology departments, CureMetrix has evaluated more than 500,000 mammogram images to identify potential false negatives, which are undiagnosed cancers, and false positives, which are unnecessary recalls of patients to review anomalies that turn out to be normal. False negatives can occur at a rate of about one in five breast cancers.1 False positives affect 7-12 percent of all women after an initial mammogram.2 Reducing false positives could save a significant portion of the $4 billion per year spent on unneeded and sometimes invasive procedures such as biopsies.3 More importantly, reducing false negatives could save lives as well as reduce the cost and difficulty of cancer treatment through early detection.

Our goal is to create CAD that Works®. Improving computer-aided detection through a robust physics-based algorithm for detecting cancer empowers radiologists, supports their patients and reduces costs while improving clinical outcomes. To learn more about CureMetrix, visit www.curemetrix.com.
