Atlanta Legal Nurse Consultant Supplies Spot On Medical Literature Research


Atlanta, Georgia – Atlanta legal nurse consultant Liz Buddenhagen, registered nurse and certified legal nurse consultant, provides medical literature research for attorney clients in the Atlanta area.

“Literature research is a natural for registered nurses” says Buddenhagen. Most nurses are already familiar and comfortable reviewing healthcare literature both in science libraries and online. Most hospitals have online access to medical literature databases available to direct care clinicians and in house libraries. Patient care areas may have relevant up-to-date texts/journals present specific to that unit’s specialty. Nursing drug reference books and a PDR are generally located on every patient care unit.

How and When Attorneys use the research:

Buddenhagen says she frequently does a brief literature review right at initial screening of a potential case to appraise current and time sensitive trends related to the emerging case issue/s and will report such to the attorney. This assists the decision making re: attorney acceptance or rejection of the case.

As the case progresses, a more in depth review of the medical literature may be indicated and performed. Analytical and critical thinking skills, much the same as used in clinical practice, aid the Atlanta legal nurse in identifying the issues and locating both supporting and controversial literature.

“We can rapidly sort through the literature and tabulate and highlight key publications thus saving the attorney and legal staff valuable time.” Attorneys may request literature research prior to mediation, deposition or trial.

Standards of care can be located and the extent and characteristics of injuries ascertained via medical literature research.

An expert witness publication search can be prudent to ensure that there are no conflicts between what the expert is testifying to and what he/she has published. Opposing expert’s publications can be scrutinized.
