CLNC consultants often tell me that the reports written for their legal nurse consulting business can become quite long documents. If you’ve ever worked with a long document you know that moving around in that document can be a pain in the butt.
There comes a time in the life of every Certified Legal Nurse Consultant when you’ll want to capture an image of either your complete computer screen or just a pop-up window. When I’m providing tech support at LegalNurse.com one of the first questions I’ll ask is, “What error message did you get?”
I recently received an email with a Word® document attachment. I found that the track changes function was turned on when I opened the document and that all of the sender’s edits to the document were showing. I was now privy to the sender’s thoughts and revisions, which gave me the negotiation advantage.
As we rely more on software programs doing our spelling for us, we can actually create spelling errors that we don’t notice, but your attorney-clients might. One of the issues with any word processing application is that once you accidentally mark a misspelled word as correct, that’s how the software spells the word until you do something about it. For example, you create your legal nurse consulting report for one of your attorney-clients and you misspell pleurisy as pleuricy. When you’re spell-checking the document you figure Word just doesn’t know any medical terms, and since you do, you click Add to Dictionary.
