The Perfect Uniform for Certified Legal Nurse Consultants

A woman in the CLNC Certification Seminar last week said, “Vickie, I can see you have a uniform.” She’s absolutely right. I adopted a uniform years ago, in the heat of a Houston summer. I was hobbling my way through an outside parking lot and the downtown city streets in high heels to meet an attorney-client.

Vickie Milazzo’s Favorite Quotes

Vickie’s Favorite Quotes: Henry David Thoreau

While Henry David Thoreau took simple living to an extreme that most of us would be hard-pressed to imagine, much less embrace for more than 24 hours, all Certified Legal Nurse Consultants and RNs could benefit from these sage words.

Should EMR Ebola Alerts Be Mandated?

Thomas Eric Duncan died yesterday from Ebola and I would like to express my deepest sympathy to his family and loved ones. I also feel for the 48 people being monitored for symptoms after their possible exposure. In view of the high mortality of Ebola his death may not have been preventable, but U.S. healthcare showed a poor face for its first Ebola diagnosis on American soil.

Tom’s Tech Tips

Tom’s Tech Tip: Fab Phablet or Fat Phablet? Only Certified Legal Nurse Consultants Know for Sure

I love my iPhone and can’t wait to upgrade to the new iPhone 6. Based on backorders though, it’ll be late November or early December before I can get my hands on one.

Plaintiff attorneys are driven by the damages in a case, but that doesn’t mean they go after all of the available damages. For example, an attorney representing a plaintiff in a vegetative state from facility #1 would probably not pursue pressure ulcer damages caused by facility #2.

Vickie Milazzo's Thoughts for Success

Thoughts for Success: No Legal Nurse Consultant Arrives Where We Are Completely on Our Own

The best business advice I received when I started my legal nurse consulting business came from an unlikely source – my CPA. Fran, owner of an accounting firm, spoke from experience when she said, “Vickie, as a business owner you will encounter challenges and problems that you won’t know how to handle. Remember, though, there’s always someone who has already solved that very problem. Turn to them when you need help and you will be more successful than you can ever imagine.”
