Additional Information

I am a Registered Nurse leader with a Master’s Degree and professional certification in Nursing Leadership. With strong bedside and management experience in Critical Care and procedural departments, I have dedicated many years to ensuring quality and compliance in high-performing patient care areas. This includes addressing patient care issues such as patient falls, pressure ulcer prevention, physical restraints, infection prevention, and procedural sedation; regulatory issues such as HIPAA, scope of care, delegation, and informed consent; and evaluating the circumstances around adverse events such as medication errors, patient misidentification, and incorrect execution of orders. I have precepted new hires, developed onboarding programs, and been extensively involved with hiring, performance evaluations, disciplinary steps, and maintaining a just culture. I am comfortable and experienced with documentation audits and medical record chart review. I have been a Registered Nurse since 2004 and have worked in management roles since 2011, providing leadership to Critical Care, Endoscopy, and Radiology departments. I have worked as Adjunct Faculty at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and have given numerous presentations at local and national conferences. I have maintained professional certification as a Nurse Manager/Leader (CNML) through the American Organization of Nurse Leaders since 2014. I look forward to using my training, education, and experience to provide objective and thorough analysis of legal matters within my area of expertise.
