Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business

January 2021 

Beth Ann Lumpkin, Lt. Col., USAF, NC (Ret.)

Thousands of registered nurses served as active duty, guard or reserve member in the Army, Air Force and Navy Nurse Corps, even the Public Health Service. Individual service duration varied anywhere between three to twenty years.  

The skills acquired in the military are extremely valuable for the civilian job market. Leading teams, critical thinking, cultural sensitivity, organization, adaptability, attention to detail, varied work hours, and solid work ethic are just a few of the traits Veteran nurses gained while on military duty. These traits make military nurses well suited for legal nurse consulting work.  

Nurses with a military background are highly educated. The structure of the military provided professional military education with each level of rank and nursing specialty. Veteran nurses have a variety of specialties translatable to nurse consulting. For example, specialties include operating room, infection control, quality assurance, midwifery, mental health, aeromedical evacuation, critical care and medical surgical are just a few of the areas for which military nurses have provided care. Military nurses provide care in both the inpatient and outpatient settings, and military nurses are trained in managing acute trauma under battlefield conditions. Military nurses must complete continuing education on an annual basis unlike some requirements from states for civilian nurses.  

R & G is a veteran owned and established business that works with a variety of clients. Highly experience nurse consultants, to include some military nurses, are part of the equation that allows R&G to provide outstanding service.

Legal Nurse Consultants… Put them into action

A legal nurse consultant (LNC) is a subject matter authority on nursing and healthcare matters much like how an attorney is an expert in legal matters. They are state licensed, detail-oriented healthcare professionals, working on behalf of the litigation team.  

Legal nurse consultants apply their knowledge, education, and clinical training to medical legal cases. Supreme is their ability to interpret medical records. Using their nursing knowledge, LNCs can quickly evaluate medical records and distill them into comprehensive summaries, or chronologies. Their attorney clients can then quickly read, understand, and put them into action. 

The primary role of LNCs involves the identifying, analyzing, and evaluating medical records while providing their professional opinions regarding health issues in medical legal cases. This field of study is composed of evaluating the standards of care, causality, and other medically related issues through the examination of medical records, healthcare literature, and legal documents. Their expertise extends to multiple topics, including: long-term care, medical malpractice, personal injury, worker’s compensation, and mass-tort litigation.  

Legal nurse consultants will also be able to establish a chronology or summary of medical records, and prepare evidence for trial. Additionally, they act as a liaison between the attorney, the healthcare provider, and medical experts. In brief, legal nurse consultation is a valuable asset to the litigation team.
