Accident/Incident Reports

Melissa Crane, County Appraiser, informed the board that one of her staff was out in the field when she slipped & fell on an acorn that was covered by leaves.  Employee initially thought she was fine and didn’t tell anyone.  However, after a day or two she had bruising on her left hip with her left wrist and lower back hurting.  Employee was sent to Behavioral Health where she had an x-ray completed on her wrist, forearm & lower back.  She was seen again two weeks after the x-ray for a follow-up and will be seen again next week.  Employee’s back is good & wrist is slowly feeling better.  Employee never lost any work and continued on full duty.
