While the defense medical exam is just one step in the process of your client’s case, it is an extremely important one. Something as simple as a late arrival can derail your client’s exam, costing you time, money, and also information. Dragging a case out longer and longer can have damaging effects as memories begin to fade. But, when a Nutris legal nurse consultant is assigned to your client’s defense medical exam, our process can help to ensure the integrity of your case.
- Ensure transportation
- Discuss the need for a translator
- Explain the exam process
- Caring for nuances such as making sure the client has left the property post exam
The results of this preparation are reduced no-shows, on-time arrivals, clear communication, and successful exams.
With over a decade of consulting, our experience and network have grown significantly. Our process allows our nurses to work with the same doctors often, and that familiarity has allowed for a professional and comfortable relationship. While it may seem insignificant, we can assure you that those relationships are often key to problem-solving any issues that may arise.
Nutris nurses are not babysitters. Their presence is much more than witnessing the exam. Our nurses are skilled a professionally advocating for your client during the exam to ensure the integrity of the exam as well as your case.
Our legal nurse consultants are registered nurses, and they have been trained using our proprietary process in order to capture as much relevant information as possible during the DME. Not only are they able to give a medical summary, but they are also skilled at knowing the important legal aspects of the exam and making notes accordingly. In addition to the professional summary, our clients receive an audio recording of the exam. Our nurses work to prepare the plaintiff for the exam to ensure that the audio recording is as high quality as possible.
