Code Regs, tit. 8, § 342(a) (2021) – Employer failed to report an employee’s serious injury in a timely manner. The Division established the injured employee’s inpatient hospitalization was for “other than medical observation,” and rejected Employer’s contention the time spent by the employee in the emergency room, and the care and treatment received there, should have been excluded from consideration as to whether the inpatient hospitalization was for other than medical observation.
