A medical record is a powerful tool that enables the care and treatment provided to patients by all healthcare professionals to be chronologically tracked.  It contains the patient’s medical history diagnostic testing and assessment notes from various medical disciplines.  It helps identify problems or patterns and assists in determining the best course of medical management for a patient.

Registered Nurses are diverse in their knowledge and experience.  They review, analyze and interpret a large and varied amount of medical documentation daily.  Nurses understand the medical terminology of physicians and other healthcare providers.  Nurses are the healthcare providers that are caring for and assessing patients for the greatest number of hours in a day and their documentation makes up a large portion of a patient’s medical record in the clinical setting.

Due to their knowledge and clinical experience, the transition for a nurse into a career as a Legal Nurse Consultant, Medical Disability Specialist or Medical File Reviewer is a seamless one.
