Bridging the gap between the legal and medical arenas
Services A Forensic Nurse Consultant experienced in working with both Prosecuting and Defense Attorneys, I can assist you by reviewing information from complex medical records and preparing a detailed chronological summary of the relevant facts, identifying standards of care, gaps in care and injuries caused by those gaps. I will review your case for merit and causation, identifying its strengths and weaknesses. I will also review depositions, suggest additional records for discovery, assist in developing interrogatories, and perform all of the necessary medical research.
I can also do independent forensic examinations, follow-up examinations, including photography of injuries and documentation. I can do evidence collection and maintain chain of custody in turning over evidence to law enforcement officers or DNA laboratories. I can do covert or overt elder well checks or other nursing related investigative work.
I can provide testimony as expert witness.
I can develop programs, lecture or instruct on forensic and other nursing topics for hospitals, law enforcement, the legal community, associations, corporations or private entities.
