PROFESSIONAL WORK EXPERIENCE 6/2000 to present Independent consultant and owner of Medical Legal Consulting of Central Florida. We do case screening, organizing with analysis of medical records, review the standards of care, do medical research, and provide the appropriate experts that are necessary for the case. We also do chronologies, timelines, and extensive data entry of records when requested on particular cases. My company will supply RN expert witnesses at no additional charge when we workup the case, and will locate other experts as needed. In addition, I personally do DNA testing of clients when needed for paternity and/or criminal cases. 12/17/03-01/17/04 Springhill Regional Hospital—Springhill, Florida. A one month contract here as a contract RN where I assisted this hospital in setting up and opening a new level II Neonatal ICU. In addition to physically stocking the new unit, I also attended the normal deliveries as well as the “high risk” deliveries. As the neonatal RN, I resuscitated the infant, assigned the Apgars, and cared for the baby through the three to four hour transitional time period. 11/98-6/02 “The Baby Place” at Largo Medical Center—Largo, Florida As the only NICU nurse required being in this level II nursery during my shift, my responsibilities are varied. They involve attendance at all hi-risk deliveries, and attend regular deliveries when available. I resuscitate (when necessary), dry and warm the infant, assign the apgars at one and five minute intervals, weigh and assess the newborn, give the newborn meds, then assist with starting the bonding process. I bathe the infant and assist in the transitioning period before giving baby back to mom. In hi- risk babies, I start IV’s, give meds and other fluids, help with intubation, control proper oxygen levels, draw blood, assist with spinal taps, suction infant, place under bili lights using appropriate care while they are under the lights, and perform numerous other responsibilities. 2/99-5/99 Brandon Hospital—Brandon, Florida Travel Assignment Very busy level III NICU. I worked in both the level II and Level III area. As this level II was the busiest, most of my work was here. It is here that the babies spend most of their time until they are able to be discharged home. 9/97-7/98 Tripler Army Medical Center—Honolulu, Hawaii Travel Assignment Level III NICU. Pregnant hi-risk mothers as well as premature and sick infants are flown here from many islands in the Pacific including large islands as well as the smallest islands. Premature babies ranged from 24 weeks gestation to 40-week seriously ill newborns. 11/96-8/97 The following hospitals include all the NICU units that I worked in Contract as a staff agency nurse with the Progressive Nursing Agency located Assignments in Alexandria, Virginia. 1) George Washington Hospital—Washington D.C. 2) Georgetown University Hospital—Washington D.C. 3) Hospital for Sick Children—Washington D.C. 4) Columbia Hospital for Women—Washington D.C. 5) Washington Children’s Hospital—Washington D.C. 6) Fairfax Hospital—Fairfax, Virginia 7) Alexandria Hospital—Alexandria, Virginia 8) Holy Cross Hospital—Silver Spring, Maryland 9) Shady Grove Hospital—Shady Grove, Maryland 10) Franklin Square Hospital—suburbs of Baltimore, Maryland 9/96-11/96 Yale-New Haven Hospital—New Haven, Connecticut Travel Assignment A busy level II—III NICU teaching hospital where I functioned as a staff nurse primarily in the busy II nursery. The babies here were stable, but may be prone to decreases in heart rate and oxygen levels. Some require oxygen supplement, others were on room air but still having difficulties in other areas. 5/96-8/96 Washington Children’s Hospital—Washington D.C. Travel Assignment Extremely busy level III NICU with the sickest children in D.C. and the surrounding areas. This is a 40-bed unit requiring many travel nurses in order to staff it sufficiently. Unfortunately, they never had enough necessary nurses. 10/95-4/96 Providence Hospital—Northeast Washington D.C. Travel Assignment This older Catholic hospital, which was dedicated by President Lincoln, is now equipped with a level II special care nursery. I enjoyed working here for six months. Unfortunately, most of these babies were from black single mothers who were addicted to drugs and/or had AIDS. 7/95-9/95 Fairfax Hospital—Fairfax, Virginia Travel Assignment Another large and busy level III NICU. I worked as a staff nurse in the level II and level III areas of this unit. 4/95-7/95 Methodist Hospital—Dallas, Texas Travel Assignment A very busy level III NICU. I primarily worked in level II as it was the busiest area. Babies here were on room air or oxygen with and/or without nasal CPAP—a non-intubated form of allowing oxygen/air under pressure to assist in keeping the infant’s lungs expanded. Assignment here involved caring for babies termed “feeder-growers.” 6/94-3/95 Columbia Hospital for Women—Washington D.C. Travel Assignment This contract required a NICU nurse to work in the newborn special care nursery where all normal newborns were brought to immediately after delivery. I was responsible for their transitional four-hour period. Here I did the newborn assessment, stabilized and bathed the infant before sending it downstairs where it was cared for by the mother-baby RNs. If the infant required special care, it would stay in our nursery- or if a serious problem were to arise, I would admit it to the level III NICU for further care. I also worked in the NICU when staffing required extra NICU help, or when I was available during my days off. 01/94-6/94 Valley General Hospital—Brownsville, Texas Travel Assignment My contract here involved caring for one severely brain damaged infant resulting from a traumatic delivery at this hospital. This assignment was a challenge in many ways in that the parents were from just over the border in Mexico, and did not speak any English. This baby was kept alive on ventilatory support, feedings through a gastrostomy tube, and intermittent IV therapy. I cared for this child for six months until place- ment was found for her in a long-term care facility. 9/93-12/93 R.E. Tomasen Hospital—El Paso, Texas Travel Assignment This level III NICU is on the border of Mexico, and offered an exciting learning experience of caring for sick and premature infants in a border town. 1992-1993 CAREFLIGHT Air Ambulance—Clearwater, Florida. Pediatric flight nurse with this company. I made many exciting trips in both fixed wing and Lear Jet planes. My flights included trips in and from Florida to Quebec, Canada, and other parts of the world. 1991-9/93 Vencor Hospital-new pediatric unit to open—Tampa, Florida Hired here to organize and setup a small step-down pediatric unit for infants and young children requiring long-term ventilatory support or tracheostomy care. This small unit was set up as a 5-bed unit, and we did have five patients originally after this unit opened. This unit was cared for by four pediatricians that staffed the Pediatric Emergency Department at Tampa General Hospital. (This unit some years later was moved to St. Petersburg, Florida.). 1990-1991 St. Joseph’s Hospital NICU (formerly Humana Women’s Hospital)— Tampa, Florida Staff nurse in this level III NICU. This involved caring for critically ill infants that were unstable and on ventilators as well as stable “feeder- growers”. 1989-1990 Allied Medical Services—Pediatric Case Manager/Supervisor— Tampa, Florida As the pediatric case manager and nursing supervisor, this position involved making hospital and home visits on sick children and infants. I was responsible for care planning, and I worked directly with the physicians on this. I was also supervisor for the nurses caring for these children in their homes. This job further required that I go to the various hospital NICU’s to teach parents basic infant CPR, and in the use and care of the Healthdyne Apnea Monitors that their infants are to go home on. During this time period I also taught CPR classes to the nurses at Tampa General Hospital. 1988 St. Charles Hospital—Toledo, Ohio Assisted in opening a new level II special care nursery. Unfortunately, some months later, I suffered a severe ankle fracture. When able to travel, I returned home to Tampa, Florida. 6/81-10/87 SHANDS Hospital at the University of Florida—Gainesville, Florida I started here as a new trainee in the level III NICU. At this time, Shands was one of only three NICU hospitals in the state of Florida. I completed the critical care course offered there by the University of Florida. My job responsibilities included assisting in hi-risk deliveries of infants requiring resuscitation, care of septic and premature neonates- some requiring chest tubes, intubation, umbilical arterial lines, central lines, peripheral lines, orogastric tubes, shunts, blood transfusions, and of course, varying types of medications. Over the course of nearly seven years, I assisted in many “codes” on infants- some with successful outcomes, and some with poor outcomes. As NICU Nurses, we were trained to assist grieving parents throughout their experience with their sick infants in the NICU. During my last three years at Shands, I also functioned as a charge nurse. 0l/79-6/81 Seven Rivers Community Hospital—Crystal River, Florida A staff nurse on the “med-surg” floor of this newly opened hospital. My duties included team leading, starting and maintaining IV’s, care of pre and post-op patients as well as the general nursing duties involved in caring for patient’s with cancer and other illnesses. 06/78-12/78 Large nursing home facility—Spokane, Washington My first position following graduation from nurses training. I functioned as the Charge nurse on weekends in the “acute care” area of this large facility. For three days during the week, I functioned as the “decubitus nurse”. Here, I gained valuable experience in caring for older patients— especially those with decubitus ulcers. I remained there until December 1978 when our family moved to Florida. 6/78-12/78 Pre-nursing career history in a “capsule”- Spokane, Washington At age 17, I graduated from high school and attended Kelsey-Baird Secretarial School in Spokane. I graduated quickly in three months at the top of my class. I started work for three OB-GYN physicians. I later worked for four busy general practice physicians starting as receptionist— and six years later was the bookkeeper and insurance billing person. In addition, for several years during this time period, I also worked as a medical transcriptionist for an agency in downtown Spokane. I transcribed medical record reports from physicians for the local hospitals. Later on, I worked for a local dermatologist as his medical transcriptionist while I was in nurses training. It was during this time that I joined the U.S. Army Reserves. Then in December of 1978 our family left Spokane and moved to Homosassa Springs, Florida where I started my career as a registered nurse.
