Expertise DescriptionI have over 25 years experience in psychiatric nursing. My expertise includes: mental health counseling, medication reviews, admits and evaluations, and liaison between doctors and medical staff. I have more than 5 years expert witness experience with consultations, deposition, and courtroom testimony.
Areas of Expertise
My expert witness experience includes locked unit rules and sexual assault in psychiatric wards.
I work as a psychiatric nurse in home health where I go to patient's homes. I've worked in patients psychiatric units for many years and helped set up one several years ago. I am an RN who has worked many years in psych but I am not an NP (nurse practitioner). I have done chart utilization review – but not for quite a years. I also used to teach psychiatric nursing, but again, that was many years ago. I do teach currently – but that is in the area of communication and writing.
