I am the founder, Lead Legal Nurse Consultant and coordinator of Krug Consulting, a Legal Nurse Consulting firm. I am a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA), Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN), and Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT).
I have 10 years of college education, including a Master’s degree in Nurse Anesthesia. I earned three national board certifications and numerous specialty certificates.
I have over 25 years of clinical healthcare experience and education on a wide variety of healthcare and medical-legal specialties.
I can provide you insights into the workings of hospitals, home health agencies, nursing homes, long-term acute care facilities, outpatient surgical centers, clinics, and doctor’s offices.
I understand, from my hands-on experience, the complicated inner workings of the healthcare industry. I am currently clinically active, working as a CRNA, so I am knowledgeable on the most recent healthcare trends and standards.
My wide-ranging background of clinical experience includes analysis of medical records and training in medical-legal issues. I bring my healthcare knowledge and clinical experience to healthcare related issues of your legal cases, acting as a vital connection between the legal and healthcare industries.
Medical Records Review & Organization
I will work behind the scenes with those seemingly never-ending medical records. I have substantial experience in collecting relevant, credible resources for an in-depth evaluation. I use my diverse background to critically assess the healthcare information. I will identify those vital components sometimes overlooked by a nonclinical reviewer.
Applying my nursing experience, and my network of professional contacts, I deliver you a full analysis and summary of your case. I apply my understanding of nursing and healthcare issues to make your job easier, more efficient and more effective. I streamline your caseload, saving you valuable time and resources.
I can determine how facts in your case relate to current healthcare trends and policies. This enables me to provide timely appropriate opinions to move cases forward, well before your deadline.
I inform you about the nursing aspects in relation to cases. I will improve your understanding of the intricacies of the problems involved in health, injury or illness related cases.
Expert Witness Support & Preparation
I help determine if further experts are necessary to your case, and, if so, I can identify the subjects which need their attention, minimizing additional costs to you. From my years in the healthcare industry, I have a vast network of healthcare and professional resources and contacts.
