Docket Number: DIA Board No. 038877-04
Location: Boston
  • Employee: Wendy Patrinos
  • Employer: Kindred Nursing Center
  • Insurer: Insurance Company State of Pennsylvania

KOZIOL, J. - The parties cross-appeal from a decision ordering the insurer to pay the employee § 34A permanent and total incapacity benefits, denying the employee's § 30 claim for medical treatment for her psychiatric and low back conditions, and ordering the insurer to pay employee's counsel a fee in the amount of $ 5,103.04 pursuant to § 13A(5). The insurer challenges the judge's adoption of certain medical evidence supporting the § 34A award. As to the insurer's appeal, we summarily affirm that portion of the decision. However, the employee raises an issue requiring reversal of the judge's denial of her § 30 claim for psychiatric treatment, and recommittal for further findings pertaining to the § 13A(5) attorney's fee issue.
