Wuerl Legal Nurse Consulting, LLC has three lines of business. Each blends Debbie's extensive Geriatric experience in Long term care, Case Management, Rehabilitation and Home Care and Hospice with the Legal aspects of nursing.
Debbie reviews medical records for Personal Injury attorneys who work primarily on nursing home cases. While reviewing these cases, she works behind the scenes to assist the attorney in numerous aspects of discovery by preparing detailed chronologies and timelines/datelines of key events found in the medical records, compares the billing with charges from comparable facilities in the area, compiles questions for interrogatories and depositions, identifies Standards of Care and deviations from those Standards, identifies potential expert witnesses that may be needed to win the case, and more.
As a Testifying witness, she speaks to the nursing questions posed based on her extensive Geriatric nursing expertise and knowledge earned over her 26 year career.
Another aspect of her business is presentation of education seminars to law firms and nursing and ancillary personnel. She also consults to start-up home care agencies that need assistance from inception through licensure, survey and beyond.
