On November 10, 2008, Employee #1, a journeyman, was instructed to do several tasks, which included moving a rolling scaffold to demolition a wall, and installing some wheels on a work box. Following the accomplishment of this work, Employee #1 complained to his supervisor that he may have strained his groin; however, he did not seek any medical treatment at that time. Two days later, Employee #1 visited the onsite medical clinic with complaints of abdominal pain. The clinic recommended that he make an appointment with Providence Occupational Health Center, where he was hospitalized and diagnosed with a hernia. Next, he was referred to the emergency department for further evaluation and a consultation with a general surgeon. Employee #1 was placed on temporary disability and underwent surgery the same day.
