Nurse Paralegal Legal Staff Job Description

The ideal Nurse Paralegal will be the one who is able to review medical records and identify abbreviations, acronyms and terminology in medical records, and identify entries relating to specific legal issues and associated legal theories. Nurse paralegals work primarily as nurses, yet they are involved in using nursing knowledge in terms of law and legality. Nurse paralegals do not restrict their Registered Nurse knowledge to just hospitals. They work as experts in the medical field wherever the need may be, such as HMOs, law practices, government facilities, journals of medicine, and insurance agencies. They also work as a legal assistant in the areas of personal injury, workers compensation, insurance defense, and medical malpractice. Nowadays, corporates want nurse paralegals who with extensive experience in their field can look at a case report or incident and quickly determine fault. The main duties and responsibilities of a nurse paralegal include: identifying terminology abbreviations, acronyms, and creating summaries of each record; working with legal team on identifying medical records that correspond and relate to the legal issues set forth by the legal team; arranging legal documents; interviewing clients and specialized witnesses; researching medical records; and studying legal issues. Completion of a nurse paralegal training program approved by the American Bar Association or membership of the American Association for Paralegal Education or RN degree is essential. Nursing experience along with experience in a law firm or legal department identifying medical issues associated with legal theories and creating summaries of those records in the context of the identified legal theories is required. Work experience as a nurse in a variety of settings such as ER/ICU, psychology, medical-surgery, pediatrics or OB is helpful. Familiarity with MS Word and Excel software platforms is a plus.
