Injury  Classifications There are eight injury classifications: 1. 2. 3. 4. Fatal  injury. This is an injury resulting in death from a mishap or from complications arising from the mishap. The length of time between the mishap and a later death has no effect on the assignment of a fatal injury classification. Permanent  total  disability. These are nonfatal injuries  that,  in  the  opinion  of  competent medical  authority,  permanently  and  totally incapacitate  a  person  so  that  he  or  she  cannot follow any gainful occupation. Additionally, the loss of, or the loss of use of, both hands, or both feet, or both eyes, or a combination of any of these body parts as a result of a single mishap will  be  considered  as  a  permanent  total disability. Permanent  partial  disability. Injuries that do not result in death or permanent total disability, but, in  the  opinion  of  competent  medical  authority, do result in permanent impairment or loss of any part of the body, loss of the great toe or the thumb, or an unrepairable inguinal hernia, with the  following  exceptions: a. b. c. d. e. f. Teeth The four smaller toes Distal phalanx of any finger Distal  two  phalanges  of  the  little  finger Repairable  hernia Hair, skin, nails, or any subcutaneous tissue Lost  workday. An injury that does not result in death,  permanent  total  disability,  or  permanent partial  disability,  but  results  in  5  or  more  lost workdays (not including the day of the injury). Lost workday level injuries are further divided into major and minor categories. a. Major Injury—A nonfatal injury that does not result in permanent total disability or permanent partial disability, but results in 5 or  more  lost  workdays  and  requires admission to a hospital or quarters, or a combination of both, for 5 or more days. It also  includes  any  of  the  following  regardless of  hospital  status: (1)  Unconsciousness  for  more  than  5 minutes because of head trauma. 5. 6. 7. 8. (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) Fracture  of  any  bone,  except  simple fracture of the nose or phalanges. Traumatic dislocation of major joints or internal  derangement  of  the  knee. Moderate  to  severe  laceration  resulting in   severe   hemorrhage   or   requiring extensive  surgical  repair. Injury to any internal organ. Any third degree bums, or any first or second  degree  burns  (including  sun- burn) over 5 percent of the body surface. b.  Minor  Injury—An  injury  less  than  major that results in 1 to 4 lost workdays. First-aid  injury.  This  injury  involves  bodily harm requiring only first aid or no treatment. No  injury. Lost at sea. Missing or unknown. Note that both lost at sea and missing/unknown injuries are considered as fatalities in assigning mishap severity  level  classification. PRE-MISHAP PLANS Simply put, pre-mishap plans are descriptions of who is responsible for doing what, both before and after an  aircraft  mishap.  A  command  must  expect,  take measures for, and formulate plans for all reasonable eventualities. The command conducts periodic drills to identify  any  deficiencies  and  to  evaluate  coordinated execution  of  the  plan. You can expect pre-mishap plans to vary widely, depending  on  the  mission,  resources,  environment,  and personnel  of  the  individual  command.  If  possible,  you should  write  pre-mishap  plans  that  will  remain  valid during  deployments.  Include  an  abbreviated  pre-mishap plan in a letter of instruction (LOI) or in executing instructions for detachment. You may require other changes  when  the  command  relocates.  For  more information  on  both  pre-mishap  plans  and  post-mishap plans,  consult  appendix  2B  of  OPNAVINST  3750.6Q. MISHAP REPORTS We  use  mishap  reports  (MRs)  to  provide  interested commands with information about significant naval aircraft   mishaps.   The   MR   includes   preliminary information on the mishap and information on the 8-6
