Location: Boston
  • Employee: Carminda Pinhacos

  • Insurer: Southcoast Health System

COSTIGAN, J. The employee appeals from a decision in which an administrative judge found that her allegation of a work injury was not credible and denied and dismissed her claim for workers’ compensation benefits. Because the judge relied heavily on an unauthenticated hospital record, improperly admitted into evidence, in making his credibility assessments, we vacate the decision and recommit the case.
