A rehabilitation center nurse who fractured her pelvis at work, as a result of her own struggle with cancer, has been awarded $200,000 in state compensation. Dale Perry, a nurse at Avon Health Center for about 10 years, fractured her pelvis at work in 2014. The fracture was attributed to brittleness associated with cancer in the bone. Although the claim did not cite a specific traumatic incident at work, the fact that Ms. Perry was working at the time of the fracture qualified her for workers’ compensation benefits because it was deemed by her physician to be a work-related injury. The injury has led to significant costs associated with pain management and numerous visits to a psychiatrist. Avon Health Center, a short-term rehabilitation and long-term, care center, was declared responsible for the costs.
