How do you attain what seems like an impossible legal nurse consulting goal? It’s simple: Apply persistence to the necessary tasks at hand. When you put persistence behind your goal, what formerly seemed impossible becomes an attainable reality.
Today’s Tech Tip was suggested by one of our staff who, coincidentally, also does a lot of tech support. It comes from an issue that we face here at Vickie Milazzo Institute and that is naming myriad documents we create and store on a daily basis. When you’re trying to quickly locate a document that’s buried in the subfolder of a secondary subfolder of a tertiary subdirectory of a departmental master directory, it can be pretty difficult if that document isn’t named and filed correctly.
As a legal nurse consultant for more than 33 years, I’ve consulted on countless medical malpractice cases with multi-million dollar verdicts. In the majority of those cases the injured plaintiff still didn’t get what he wanted most – an apology from the hospital and treating physician.

Five Certified Legal Nurse Consultants share their most effective attorney-interview strategies. These CLNC Pros remind us that RNs are more than qualified to interview successfully with attorneys. All you have to do is follow their sage advice.
Why one person succeeds more than another is not always obvious to the rest of us. Even a successful talent like Richard Gere can’t always articulate the reasons for his own success. He’s said, “Certainly there have been better actors than me who have had no careers. Why? I don’t know.”
I admit it – I lose things. I lose my car keys. I lose my wallet. I lose documents. I even lost Vickie once in Hong Kong (not a good thing). But now thanks to an app called TurboScan, I will never lose another document (Vickie and the rest I’ll just have to keep better track of).
