What Do Polar Bears Know About Renewal for Legal Nurse Consultants?

I just got back from an 18-day trip to Svalbard Island, deep in the Arctic Circle and halfway between Norway and the North Pole. We started in Copenhagen and finished in Oslo. The best part of the trip was spent spotting polar bears and other Arctic wildlife at Svalbard Island.

Research Proves What Legal Nurse Consultants Already Know – A Simple Sorry Reduces Medical Malpractice Cases

One thing every Certified Legal Nurse Consultant knows is that a simple apology by a healthcare provider often goes a long way in disarming anger in patients.

Are You Serving Meatball Sundaes to Your Attorney-Clients?

I’m not a pack-rat, but I’ll admit a couple of bookshelves in the business section of my “library” are a bit over-run by books I’ve read, plan to read and some books I will probably never read. The other day Tom was doing some unsolicited (and unwanted) Spring cleaning and ran across a book given to me by the marketing guru Seth Godin. Tom looked at the cover and asked me “Vickie, what the #&%* is a meatball sundae?” He held the book up and I laughed because it does indeed have a photograph of a pretty unappealing meatball sundae (as well as a funny shot of Seth in a chef’s cap).

Tom’s Tuesday Tech Tip: Nix Windows XP Indexing to Speed Up Your Computer for Your Legal Nurse Consulting Business

Windows XP comes with a nifty indexing service that was designed to help speed up your searches for documents, folders and other files. Unfortunately it doesn’t work as well or as fast as it was designed. It actually slows your computer’s performance. Microsoft fixed the issue in Windows Vista but for those Certified Legal Nurse Consultants and people like me who are still using XP, you’ll have to take matters into your own hands to nix the index.
