Our Process of reviewing nursing home cases
Initial Merit Review by Nursing Home Legal Nurse Consultants
Nursing home legal nurse consultants specialize in evaluation of nursing home medical records to determine if the case has merit. Without spending too much time, our nursing home nurse consultants can provide a thumbs up/thumbs down review.
This review will also provide a list of missing records, or any pertinent information that may be helpful to further review your case to determine merit.
Organizing and analyzing Medical Records and Medical Bills by Nursing Home Legal Nurse Consultants
If the case has merit, we will assist in compiling and organizing all the medical records and bills to identify any missing or pertinent records that can make or break your case merit.
Case Chronology and Report – Nursing Home Legal Nurse
The next step in our review process is to compile a comprehensive case summary report which is in IRAC (Issue, Rule, application, conclusion) format to list deviation from any nursing standards of care, violations of state and federal laws and regulations as applicable, and any damages caused by these breaches.
Litigation Support Services

It is set to identify any mismatch or missing records. Working with dense nursing home medical records is our specialty.
