Employee Fractures Arm In Fall Off Chair

At 10:30 a.m. on October 20, 2010, Employee #1 was working at an elementary school in Richmond, California. Employee #1 was an Instructional Assistant in PreSchool Room Number 8. Employee #1 was attempting to place Halloween decorations above a display board along the west wall of the room, near the north entrance, and stepped onto a small classroom chair to do so. Employee #1 lost her balance while standing on the chair, fell off the chair, and landed hard onto a tile floor covered by a section of carpet. Employee #1 struck her right elbow against the ground, injuring it. The nurse confirmed that Employee #1 had a broken right arm. Emergency Services was then called, and they treated Employee #1, and then transported her to Doctor's Medical Center in San Pablo, arriving around 11:10 a.m. Employee #1 was admitted to Doctor's Medical Center, and remained for elbow surgery, treatment and care, until her release on October 22, 2010.
