We’re excited to introduce you to Eric and Andrea Smith and share their story about how they have built Nutris.
Since 2010, Nutris has worked to build a network of specially trained legal nurse consultants who are the leaders in the industry. Our nurses are screened, trained, and consistently evaluated to ensure that our clients have only the best of the best legal nurse consultants attending their client’s defense medical exams. The way we’re able to do that is that our founders quite literally wrote the book on consulting nurses!
Looking to do something different with her career in order to have a more balanced schedule for her family, Andrea took an opportunity from a family friend to review and summarize medical records for personal injury cases. As a registered nurse, she understood the medical jargon in the records. Her work took massive medical records and condensed them into a compelling summary that was a valuable aid for injury cases.
Summarizing records gave way to actually attending the defense medical exams herself rather than writing about them after the fact. With the guidance of the attorney, Andrea quickly learned not only how to observe and document the exam, but when and how to intervene to protect the client and the case too. At that point, it became clear that her expertise would be valuable to many attorneys and their cases and so she and her husband Eric founded Nutris Legal Nurse Consultants.
What’s In a Name
Naming their business was not so simple. Finding the right fit that was both descriptive and meaningful was challenging. Eventually, the couple landed on the word nutris – Latin for nurture or care. It felt like the perfect fit; not only would a Nutris nurse be at an exam to document, but to also care for the client and help to protect their case.
Behind the Scenes
The mission behind Nutris is to provide clients with exceptional customer service. From the time a client calls to book a legal nurse consultant to the nurse attending a defense medical exam, through the delivery of the summary and recordings – Nutris clients can expect nothing less than stellar care. This is a personal point of pride for Eric who manages the staff and client calls. His goal is to always answer the phone no matter the day or time! But in case he misses one, he is always getting back to his clients as quickly as possible.
