In every medical related case there are areas of the medical record that should be evaluated regardless of the type case or the surrounding circumstances. These areas of the record are important because they can contain key pieces of information about what did or did not occur during the care of that particular patient. A thorough medical record review should be done for any case involving medical issues, whether it is for the plaintiff or the defense.
Because the medical record is such a critical source of information in any medical related case, the review should be done by someone who is experienced and familiar with the components and language of the record. Nurses are experts in medical record review. They are detail oriented and can identify pertinent areas of the record that are often missed by others. Nurses are the ideal professional for a complete and efficient analysis.
