Question: An employee feels pain in his chest while at his workstation. He suddenly faints and falls to the floor. Members from the first aid team respond by starting a defibrillator on the unconscious employee and call 911 for an ambulance. The employee is revived on site and is then taken to the hospital and held overnight. It is determined the employee suffered a heart attack. The employee has suffered from heart disease for several years and has a family history of it. The employee’s doctor determined the employee died of a heart attack due to blocked blood flow in the heart. Further, the doctor reviewed the employee’s job tasks and determined that his job did not aggravate his condition to cause the heart failure. Is it recordable?
