How an LNC Can Benefit a Family

If You Suspect Negligence

My expertise is geriatric nursing. My role is to help families understand the health care system as it relates to their senior family members.

As a Legal Nurse Consultant (LNC), I bring my knowledge of clinical practice and the expected standard of care to support you when you have questions about the care being provided.

I know the regulations and have a thorough knowledge of the expected standard of care that nurses should provide to the elderly in their charge.

As an LNC, I work with clients and family to help them understand diagnoses and the resources available to them and will work with the health care team to fully understand the care an elderly person requires.

I can assist families by:

  • informing them what questions to ask
  • finding out who the questions should be addressed to
  • educating them how to advocate effectively for a family member

With a thorough knowledge of the issues, a plan of action can be made based on the evidence.

I will be happy to speak with you regarding your concerns at any time. You can contact me by email or phone.

My credentials are available here.
