A home health nursing expert witness typically has a background as a registered nurse, nurse practitioner, or in legal nurse consulting, and has professional experience at a nursing home, assisted living, hospital, long term care facility, or as a home healthcare provider. The chosen expert may be associated with an industry organization such as the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC), the American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL), the Home Care Association of America (HCAOA) or the National Association for the Support of Long Term Care (NASL).
Home health nursing care can be a long term or short-term assignment, and can assist patients with basic needs, such as bathing, feeding, monitoring, as well as wound care, pain management, and medication administering. Home health care provides services for all ages, and aids with surgical procedure recovery to the terminally ill. Patient care in a home setting can be an alternative to a nursing home, assisted living facility, long term care facility, hospital, or skilled nursing facility.
Litigation matters supported by a home health nursing expert witness could involve a medical malpractice case, personal injury, long term care insurance, standards of care, or wrongful death. Litigation support activities by a subject matter expert in home health care could include an expert report, expert opinion, deposition testimony and courtroom testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, an attorney may request a legal nurse consultant with prior expert testimony experience. The expertise of a home health nursing expert witness will provide credibility to enable the jury to consider the evidence with the weight it deserves.
