To the extent that the facts bear out this story, the most noteworthy observation to be made is the inability of the QME to be able to distinguish between a 100% impairment and an 18% impairment. Is this a failure in the exam process, does it reflect a doctor’s willingness to search for an impairment rating that matches the complaints of the injured worker or is it an artifact of the Guides? More should be done to look at this and similar cases to determine how to improve the method of impairment assessment.
