Question about reviewing case and fees
- 0Sep 9, '08 by MemphisOBRNCI have been asked to review a case that is not within my specialty, which the attorney knows. Is there a percentage of your specialty fee that you charge for reviewing cases out of your area of expertise?
- 2Sep 9, '08 by sirI AdminI charge the same fee whether it is in my "specialty" area or not.
You are a nurse. You know how to apply SOP/SOC across the nursing disciplines.
If you need input and/or need to workup a case and you are uncomfortable with this because you do not have experience in that area, you can always sub-contract that case.
But, you should be able to apply standard of care/scope of practice in the review.
- 2Sep 10, '08 by KLKRNI have decided that I will take on a case, and if I find it's over my head (like cardiology or OB - reading strips, for instance) I'll get a subcontractor to do that part for me.
But I agree with SirI. I'm an RN. I can apply my experience and knowledge to any area of nursing to determine the standard of care and outcome of any given case.
SirI: What does SOP stand for?
