Long term care expert witness candidates typically have backgrounds as a registered nurse, nurse practitioner or consultant pharmacist in geriatric medicine, and have professional experience at a nursing home, assisted living or long term care facility. Often, the chosen expert is a member of an industry association such as The American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL), or The National Association for the Support of Long Term Care (NASL).
Long term care refers to patient care that provides assistance with basic daily activities such as dressing, bathing and using the bathroom, and can be offered at the home or in a nursing home, assisted living, long term care facility, or skilled nursing facility. Litigation matters supported by a long term care expert witness typically 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 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 long term care expert witness will provide credibility to enable the jury to consider the evidence with the weight it deserves.
