March 5, 2004:
Med League Support Services is pleased to announce that our president, Patricia Iyer, has successfully completed the requirements to renew her legal nurse consultant certification (LNCC). This certification examination tests knowledge of the specialty practice area of legal nurse consulting. Administered by the American Legal Nurse Consultant Certification Board (ALNCCB), the LNCC program is becoming a means of identifying registered nurses who have achieved defined levels of knowledge, experience, and education in the medical legal system. Certification is granted by examination to registered nurses with at least 2000 hours of practice in the last five years as a legal nurse consultant.
Legal nurse consultants serve in a number of settings, including independent practices, law firms, insurance companies, government offices, and health care risk management departments. We are experienced in preparing medical record chronologies, assisting attorneys with discovery, educating attorneys on pertinent medical facts and identifying issues pertaining to standards of care, causation and damages in cases. Our expertise has proven to be a cost-effective, resourceful and knowledgeable resource for legal professionals today.
