Injured While Donating Blood

Question:
Karen volunteers to donate blood for a company-sponsored blood drive. While inserting a needle the nurse sneezes and impales her artery. Karen visits the ER for treatment and is issued antibiotics. Is it recordable?

Answer:
NO, it is not recordable. This event falls under one of the exceptions to the geographic presumption: [The incident is not recordable when] the injury or illness results solely from voluntary participation in a wellness program or in a medical, fitness, or recreational activity such as blood donation, physical examination, flu shot, exercise class, racquetball, or baseball.
