Westmoreland Regional Hospital (Employer) petitions for review of the May 15, 2001 order of the Workers’ Compensation Appeal Board (WCAB) affirming, as modified, the decision of a workers’ compensation judge (WCJ) to grant both the claim petition and the reinstatement petition filed by Barbara Stopa (Claimant) and to deny Employer’s termination petition. Employer challenges the WCAB’s order only insofar as it permits a “stacking” of Claimant’s total disability benefits. We agree with Employer and modify the WCAB’s order accordingly.

Claimant sustained a rotator cuff injury to her right shoulder on January 15, 1995, while working for Employer as a licensed practical nurse. As a result of this injury, Claimant received compensation pursuant to a notice of compensation payable (NCP) at the rate of $389.71 per week, reflecting an average weekly wage of $584.56.
