Notes from the Nurse Practitioner


What is a Legal Nurse Consultant and why do you need one for your practice?

A Legal Nurse Consultant is a Registered Nurse who uses their expert experience as a healthcare professional and specialized Legal Nurse Consultant training to advise on medical related cases.   A Legal Nurse Consultant works closely with the attorney on a case as the nursing, medical and healthcare system expert on the litigation team.  The Legal Nurse Consultant uses their knowledge and expertise in healthcare related issues to make the attorney’s job easier, more effective and more efficient.   While the attorney is the expert at the legal issues, a Legal Nurse Consultant is the expert in nursing and the inner workings of the healthcare system.  

Legal Nurse Consultants can collaborate with and provide valuable insight to attorneys on a wide variety of cases including medical malpractice, products liability, worker’s compensation, and personal injury.  This insight could mean the difference in winning or losing the case.

There are many services the Legal Nurse Consultant can offer to the attorney. Just a few services offered:

  • Screen or investigate cases for merit
  • Define the applicable standards of care
  • Define deviations from, and adherences to, the applicable standards of care
  • Assess the alleged damages and/or injuries
  • Identify factors that caused or contributed to the alleged damages and /or injuries
  • Organize, tab and paginate medical records
  • Summarize, translate and interpret medical records
  • Identify and recommend potential defendants
  • Conduct literature searches and integrate the literature and standards/ guidelines into the case analysis

Why Hoover Legal Nurse Consulting

We discussed what a Legal Nurse Consultant does and why you need one for your practice. Now let’s focus on why you should choose Hoover Legal Nurse Consulting.

Let’s be honest: There are thousands of Legal Nurse Consultants out there, but not all consultants are created equal. The best are the ones that have the right combination of experience, passion, education and personality. You know when you hire them to assist you on a case, they will be 100% honest, and you will get more than your money’s worth. The best are the ones you want to brag about to all your colleagues, while also wanting to keep this treasure you’ve found to yourself.

At Hoover Legal Nurse Consulting, I am different from many Legal Nurse Consultants! While I am a Registered Nurse (RN), I have a Masters degree and I am licensed as a Nurse Practitioner (NP). I've dealt with situations that many Legal Nurse Consultants have not experienced. I was the primary care provider in an outpatient Veteran’s Administration Clinic, a Total Joint Nurse Practitioner in an orthopedic practice and cared for many geriatric patients over the last 25 years. I have treated chronic pain, low back pain, personal injury, and personal injury protection (PIP) patients.

I can say with confidence that Hoover Legal Nurse Consulting is your best choice. I am no stranger to long hours and hard work. I do my best work when I have deadlines. I am smart, I am not afraid to say “I don’t know but I’ll find out”, and I will never shy away from telling an attorney the truth.
