Tom’s Tech Tip: Put Windows “Previous Versions” to Work for Your Legal Nurse Consulting Business

Like most Certified Legal Nurse Consultants, when typing a new document I’ll use an earlier version of a similar document as a template. As a best practice, I immediately retitle the old document with the new document name and save that new document with its new name. By doing so, I don’t accidently overwrite the old document. Sound confusing? It’s not. And, as long as you do it religiously, it works great and any reasonably disciplined CLNC consultant can, and should, do it.

Tom’s Tech Tip: What a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant Should Do with Email from the Living Dead

Yesterday I received an email from someone I know who passed on about this time last year. It isn’t the first time he emailed me posthumously, and it won’t be the last. In fact, he isn’t the only dead person that emails me. What is so urgent that this legion of apparently living dead have to communicate from the other side? Well, as you can guess, it was spam and not for life-extending supplements.

Tom’s Tech Tip: Certified Legal Nurse Consultants – Here’s Your Second, Second Chance

Last week we discussed a Certified Legal Nurse Consultant’s ability to delay sending an email long enough for your conscience to kick in and delete it, thus stopping you from doing something extremely dangerous to your legal nurse consulting business and professional reputation. This week I’m going to push the envelope a little further and give you another useful tool – the ability to delay sending a text message long enough to recall or delete it.

Tom’s Tech Tip: Certified Legal Nurse Consultants – Here’s Your Second Chance

Admit it, every Certified Legal Nurse Consultant has been there. In the heat of the moment you compose an email to an attorney-client, CLNC subcontractor or expert witness, click the send button and then, for some reason best left to your particular imagination, immediately decide it’s best if you could un-send or recall that email. But you can’t, what’s sent is sent, and the damage whether it is misspelled words, a badly constructed sentence or a bridge burned completely to the ground, is done.

Tom’s Tech Tip: One Step Every Certified Legal Nurse Consultant Should Take on Facebook

This Tech Tip isn’t about protecting your personal information, it’s more about preserving or deleting it. Every Certified Legal Nurse Consultant has probably run across a Facebook page belonging to someone who’s deceased. It might have been a friend, a nursing colleague from your RN hospital job, a CLNC subcontractor or an attorney-client (which explains the unpaid invoices). The problem with Facebook is that if someone doesn’t have the log-in credentials to close an account, after someone passes, the page(s) remains forever.
