- Employee: Denise M. Wiinikainen
- Employer: Epoch Senior Living, Inc.
- Insurer: A.I.M. Mutual Ins. Co.
KOZIOL, J. The insurer appeals from a decision denying “the employee’s claim for § 34 benefits,”1 and ordering the insurer to pay for “reasonable and related medical expenses pursuant to Section [sic] 13 and 30 for treatment, including surgery and aftercare as requested by her treating physician.” (Dec. 12-13.) The insurer alleges the judge erred by ruling that the employee met her burden of proof under § 1(7A), by making inconsistent findings and an arbitrary finding regarding the medical evidence, by ordering the surgery, and by failing to address the insurer’s underlying complaint to discontinue weekly benefits. The insurer seeks reversal of the order for surgery and recommittal for further findings of fact addressing its complaint.
