Medical timelines, also known as medical chronologies, are concise summaries of a patient’s medical history and treatment. They are created by our legal nurse consultants (LNCs) and provide an organized representation of the medical events related to a specific case.
In complex legal cases, these timelines play a pivotal role in presenting critical medical information in a concise format. They offer a comprehensive overview of the patient’s medical events, treatments, and interventions, allowing attorneys, medical experts, judges, and juries to understand the medical complexities of the case.
Our team of experienced legal nurse consultants specializes in creating meticulous and accurate medical timelines, providing an invaluable resource to legal professionals seeking to understand the medical aspects of their cases. By utilizing our Medical Timelines service, attorneys can have cumbersome medical records summarized into a report that’s easy for non-medical professionals to understand.
The Bridge Point LNC Approach
Our medical timelines typically include the following components:
1. Timeline of Events: A chronological list of significant medical events, starting from the patient’s initial presentation or admission and progressing through their medical history.
2. Medical Records and Documents: Relevant medical records, such as physician notes, diagnostic test results, surgical reports, and treatment plans, are included in the timeline, organized by date.
3. Treatments and Interventions: Details of medical treatments, procedures, surgeries, medications prescribed, and other medical interventions are outlined in the timeline.
4. Hospital Admissions and Discharges: Dates of hospital admissions, discharges, and any transfers between medical facilities are included in the timeline.
6. Significant Clinical Information: Any significant changes in the patient’s condition, complications, improvements, or deteriorations are highlighted in the timeline.
7. Notes: medical jargon, acronyms, and complex findings are defined in layman’s terms.
8. Medical illustrations: can be included upon request to highlight anatomy or disease processes.
