Decision Mary Conrad v. McLean Hospital

Date: 10/17/2005
Organization: Department of Industrial Accidents
Docket Number: DIA Board No. 045425-99
Location: Boston
  • Employee: Mary Conrad
  • Employer: McLean Hospital
  • Self Insurer: Partners Healthcare System, Inc.

HORAN, J. The self-insurer appeals from a decision awarding the employee permanent and total incapacity benefits for a November 18, 1999 workrelated shoulder and neck injury. The self-insurer raises one issue on appeal. It argues the employee's vocational expert, Dr. Emmanuel Green, impermissibly formed an opinion based in part upon his lay understanding of pain medication, and its side effects. Because we deem the issue waived, we affirm the decision.
