Legal nurse consultants are registered nurses who have chosen to use their knowledge and expertise to help attorneys de-mystify the medical issues in legal cases. They are involved in both plaintiff and defense cases.
As professionals, they follow their medical ethics of confidentiality in client communications as well as the ABA ethics.
Any case with medical issues involved offers a potential morass of information. The nurse consultant provides an insider’s perspective on the practices and procedures of the healthcare industry as well as an in-depth understanding of the medical facts and patient care issues.
