What is a Legal Nurse Consultant?

What is a Legal Nurse Consultant?
A legal nurse consultant is a registered nurse who has expertise
in reviewing and interpreting medical records.

Certified legal nurse consultants have successfully completed
an advanced educational program and passed a certification exam
in the field of legal nursing which requires continuing education
to maintain this status.

Of all the health care professionals, it is the nurse who coordinates
and utilizes each and every part of the medical record in delivering
and documenting daily patient care.

Ask a legal nurse consultant about a medical record and you will find
all the details you need to know.

Legal nurse consultants can be an asset to any legal team that deals
with cases involving health care issues, such as illness, injury or death.

Why does an attorney need the services of a Legal Nurse Consultant?

Legal nurse consultants save attorneys time by doing the medical legwork for cases.
They review, organize, and interpret all the facts in the medical records

Legal nurse consultants educate the legal team on
unfamiliar medical terms or procedures.

Legal nurse consultants find appropriate expert witnesses to 
represent standards of professional practice.

Legal nurse consultants utilize tools to explain and demonstrate how
health care is delivered, using simple terms geared towards jury comprehension.

They are skilled in doing research in the medical literature on topics related to a case.

Why use a Legal Nurse Consultant if you work with a Physician?

The services of a legal nurse consultant are broader, more varied, and
more cost-effective than that of a doctor.

The medical record is a complex set of facts which unfolds to describe
the events during the course of illness or injury.
A nurse's role covers the whole spectrum of health care areas including
vital signs, physical exams, lab work, x-rays, nutrition, medications, & physical therapy.

Our nurses, who are all certified legal nurse consultants, can educate
the attorney on a much wider range of patient care issues than an MD can.

Why use a Legal Nurse Consultant when you have a paralegal?

A legal nurse consultant is much more familiar with standards of practice
for health care professionals as well as policies and procedures unique to patient care.

Legal nurse consultants understand the dynamics related to staffing, patient
care ratios, making credentials, and protocols, all which affect patient outcomes.

A legal nurse consultant can save you time and money by allowing your paralegal
to focus, research and address the legal elements of your case.

Legal nurse consultants augment the work of your paralegal.
