Beth Weinstein (plaintiff) was an employee of St. Mary’s Medical Center (Hospital) (defendant). In October 1994, Weinstein injured her left foot in a work-related accident. Weinstein applied for and received workers’ compensation benefits as a result of the accident. In January 1995, Weinstein visited the Hospital for the purpose of receiving medical treatment for her left foot. While being escorted through the premises by a Hospital employee, Weinstein slipped and fell, aggravating the injury on her left foot as a result. In December 1995, Weinstein sued the Hospital in a personal-injury action based on premises liability. The Hospital moved for summary judgment on the ground that Weinstein’s exclusive remedy against the Hospital for the January 1995 injury was her workers’ compensation claim. The trial court granted summary judgment in favor of the Hospital. Weinstein appealed.
