Determining Merit for a Case:
Merit reviews: When you get those new cases on your desk, how do you determine if there is a case worth pursuing? We give you an initial review of your case, looking for possible breaches of care and a concise description of those breaches of care. Our skilled, trained nurses will provide the clinical review of the records, and give you back an honest opinion of case events and potential breaches in care that occurred, noting any potential weaknesses so you can fully evaluate the findings.
Medical Case Evaluation: Have the Facts, Get a Better Outcome.
Knowing the facts in the medical records will help you, the attorney, understand the case issues, better represent your client, and save you and your staff time and effort.

The answers are in the medical records and we will find them.
Analyzing medical records
A comprehensive review and analysis of medical records in nursing home, injury, or medical cases is an integral part of what we do. Each case has a story to tell the jury and having the facts and evidence-based standards substantiated by a Paige Legal Nurse consultant builds your case and helps you achieve a better outcome.
There are many details often overlooked by others who are not used to specifically deciphering the medical jargon and familiar with the proper procedures and standards of care. Our legal nurse consultants address the standards of care, along with any pre-existing conditions that may have an impact on your case. We prepare comprehensive medical case reports for you that identify and explain the case issues at hand and their importance to your case.
Timelines of critical events that can serve as a working document throughout the case can be very beneficial. However, not every detail needs to go on the timeline. Knowing the crucial and important information to use on building your timeline is essential. The timelines built can also be a valuable guide to the medical record for your expert as it can be adjusted to contain only facts and reference data on where to find the facts in the medical record, assisting them in a timelier review.
Nursing Home Case Review
Nursing home case records typically arrive in a jumbled, disorganized mess, making the review of records more difficult. Depending on the number of records you get before you have even decided if it is a case you are taking, it may be beneficial for us to sort and organize them. This will expedite the review of records to help you find information needed to evaluate if breaches of care occurred.
Nursing home cases typically involve falls, missed or improperly treated infection and sepsis development, or pressure injury development. It is not as simple as seeing if the nurse has documented a fall or the development of abnormal resident presentation or if a new pressure injury was identified. There are many areas that need to be analyzed and looked at in each of these scenarios.
Examples of medical negligence include the surgery performed on the wrong body part, wrong procedure being performed, unnecessary surgery, surgical errors, objects retained during surgery, failure to understand or recognize symptoms, patient suicide, and typically any type of event that should never take place in a medical facility under any circumstance.
When reviewing any case for medical malpractice, our team of nurses at Paige Legal Nurse can clearly identify violations in the standard of care and resulting injuries caused by the negligence.
Permanency of injuries is also reviewed with life care planning or medical cost projection available as well.
Personal Injury Medical Case Evaluation
Concise analysis on personal injury cases are crucial to building your case. In your injury cases, we are able to explain strengths and weaknesses related to liability, causation, and damages. Also important, we identify inconsistencies in the records and create an injury list, noting new or aggravated pre-existing conditions as well as identify missing records that may be beneficial to request for all information needed.
