Ms. Jackson brings a strong foundation of nursing knowledge and experience to her legal work. She is a 1977 BSN and a 1983 MSN graduate of the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Nursing. She has been a critical care nurse in a variety of clinical settings, and has also been a nurse educator, a researcher, a cardiac surgery nurse and a vascular surgery clinical coordinator.
Since the mid 1990’s, her full-time professional focus has been on advocating for victims of medical negligence, lecturing to medical professionals on how to deliver safer patient case and supporting Plaintiffs’ attorneys.
Navigating electronic records has added another dimension of challenge and intrigue to developing legal cases. In the course of her legal work in multiple states, handling hundreds of different patient’s records in many different formats, Ms Jackson was forced to develop methods to obtain, then manage these records and audit trails, in order to make them accessible and useful to the legal team.
When the ASTM E2147, the international standard defining minimal requirements for auditable data preserved by EHR software, was withdrawn, Nursine chaired the committee that re-wrote the new standard and got it passed by the ASTM committee. She has a tale to tell along with useful information she picked up during this incredible journey. Collapse
