Community Hospitals of Indiana, Inc. (“Community”), appeals from the denial of its motion to dismiss Janice S. Vitatoe’s complaint against ProCare Rehab Services of Community Hospital (“ProCare”) for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.
Conclusion (slip op. at 12): We reverse the denial of Community’s motion to dismiss Vitatoe’s proposed medical malpractice complaint for lack of subject matter jurisdiction and remand for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.
Key Analysis (slip op. at 10): If an employee’s injury that arose out of and in the course of her employment is aggravated by treatment for that injury, regardless of where, when, by whom, and for how long the treatment was provided, the injury caused by the treatment shall be deemed as a matter of law to have arisen out of and in the course of her employment for purposes of the IWCA. As such, the employee’s exclusive remedy against her employer for the injury caused by the treatment is under the IWCA.
