Additional Information

Sharlene Rojas brings over a quarter-century of nursing experience as the founder and chief executive officer of Altrium Consulting Services, LLC. Coupled with her background as a professional liability investigator, she brings an invaluable skill set allowing the firm to offer a myriad of services to both plaintiff and defense attorneys, as well as hospitals and other healthcare organizations, including: • Expert witness testimony (emergency nursing, trauma, acute cardiac, and critical care) • Chart Review – Organize, summarize, and decipher the medical record (written or electronic), including chronologies, discrepancies, etc. • Case Analysis – Standard of care, potential proximate cause, hospital policies, screening cases for merit, etc. • Research and summarization of the relevant medical literature • Preparation for deposition and/or trial – research, exhibits, documents • Independent/Defense Medical Examination Her experience as a professional liability investigator for chart review and case analysis extends to med/surg (inpatient care), acute care pediatrics, obstetrics, anesthesia, as well as general surgery and surgical subspecialties (e.g.: orthopedics, ophthalmology). Ms. Rojas has been both a CEN (Certified Emergency Nurse) and a CCRN-A (Certified Acute/Critical Care Nursing – Adult) for almost fifteen years. Presently, only one percent of all registered nurses in the United States are CENs; less than three percent are CCRNs. The number who have both is of course far, far, smaller. PRESSED FOR TIME? We offer both RUSH (5 business days) and "SUPER-RUSH" (72 hours, including weekends and holidays) service in selected cases. See the Fee Schedule page on our website for more information. Terms & conditions apply. LNCC, CLNC, and LNC. What’s the difference? • An “LNCC” (Legal Nurse Consultant Certified) — like Ms. Rojas — is recognized by the American Legal Nurse Consultant Certification Board after being employed for at least five years as a registered nurse with at least 2,000 hours of legal nurse consulting experience, and only then passing a rigorous, proctored examination. • A “CLNC” (Certified Legal Nurse Consultant) is obtained after taking a 40-hour online course, followed by an exam. Essentially, it’s the difference between certification and a certificate. You can go to the AALNC website ( for more information. • An “LNC” (legal nurse consultant) is a title any registered nurse can use, even without prior training or experience. As of January 2023, a search on the SEAK website for “Legal Nurse Consultant” yields 32 names. Only two are LNCCs.
