It doesn't look like you would count that partial shift worked as a lost time day:



1904.7(b)(4)(v)

How do I record a case where the worker works only for a partial work shift because of a work-related injury or illness? A partial day of work is recorded as a day of job transfer or restriction for recordkeeping purposes, except for the day on which the injury occurred or the illness began.



I hope this helps!
