ForensisGroup’s catheter expert witnesses are experienced nurses, doctors, and other healthcare professionals. Some have expertise in forensic nursing, medicine, and medical record review, and have testified in cases involving arterial blood gas drawing and line insertion, venipuncture, intravenous catheter insertion, and percutaneous central venous catheter insertion. Others are experienced with catheter ablation, infusion therapy, vascular access devices, and the use of PICC (peripherally inserted central catheter).
A catheter is a flexible piece of medical equipment and is used to pass through body channels to withdraw or introduce fluids into a body cavity. Catheters are typically constructed of rubber, plastic (PVC), silicone, or latex. One common type of catheter is the urinary catheter, which is the leading cause of healthcare-associated urinary tract infections (UTIs). These catheters can also cause complications such as an allergic reaction to the catheter material, bladder stones, blood in the urine, injury to the urethra, kidney damage, and infection of the urinary tract, kidney, or blood.
Our professional consultants have served as expert witnesses in cases of medical malpractice and standard of care, negligence, and personal injury. They have consulted in corporate risk management, care for the disabled and special needs children, and patient education program development. Many are professors of medicine, RPNs, surgeons, and other physician specialists.
