One Easy Defense Can Transform Your Case as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant

A 2013 study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal and a 2012 American Journal of Medicine study both show that leaving a hospital against medical advice (AMA) more than doubles a patient’s risk of death. Leaving a hospital AMA also triples a patient’s likelihood of readmission within 30 days.

More Than 4,000 CLNC® Consultants Reveal an Important Secret

I have the privilege of knowing most of the CLNC consultants in the NACLNC Association and they are one of the most diverse groups of professionals I’ve ever met. It’s the diversity in their CLNC businesses that is the clue to the first step you will want to take in launching your legal nurse consulting business.

Do You Need to Be Less of Yourself as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant?

I’m all for authenticity and I love that the 4,000 plus Certified Legal Nurse Consultants feel like they know me. I’m not one to be a fake nor do I trust people who are remote and untouchable. I also like being accessible to the CLNC® consultants I service. At the same time, I don’t believe in letting it all hang out either.

My Most Memorable CLNC® Case

My Most Memorable CLNC® Case: My Compassion Helped Settle the Case for $2.5 Million Dollars

My most memorable case involved a 21-year-old Portuguese speaking woman who was about to have her second child. During the C-section closure, the patient sustained an injury to her bladder which resulted in the development of a vesicouterine fistula and vesicovaginal fistula. She suffered for five days without being able to communicate her needs, pain or fear to the medical staff. She was eventually transferred to a tertiary care hospital but had to undergo a hysterectomy to repair the injury to her bladder. The failure to recognize the injury lasted five days.

Who Are You Really?

I’m wired for action, and I want you, as a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant, to be wired for action too. But before you take action, you have to understand that action is most relevant and will serve you best when you know yourself.

Tom's Tech Tips

Tom’s Tuesday Tech Tip: Best iPad Keyboard Ever – Maybe!

I love my iPad® and I’m sure that any Certified Legal Nurse Consultant with an iPad feels the same way. I’ve really taken to it, whether I’m proofing the CLNC® Online Certification Program, watching movies or reading books. It’s simple, easy to use and accompanies me anywhere I need a large format screen but not a computer or iPhone® (think Rome, Kigali or Chengdu). What I do not love about my iPad is typing on the onscreen keyboard.
