Casey works as TPMB’s in-house critical care nurse consultant. With over 20 years of critical care experience, Casey applies her knowledge and experience in conducting reviews of medical malpractice cases. Casey plays an essential role in assisting the attorneys as they evaluate and litigate medical malpractice cases.
Casey’s career began in 1996 when she became a Certified Nurse Assistant working in nursing homes caring for the elderly population with Alzheimer’s and dementia. She began working in the hospital setting in 1997 in the Intensive Care Unit as a patient care technician and a unit secretary. It was shortly after this that she pursued her degree as a Registered nurse. She completed her nursing degree in Kansas City in 2005 and her first position after obtaining her degree was in an Intensive Care Unit. Over time, Casey has worked at small local hospitals and large University hospitals. Her most recent and longest-lasting bedside position for the last 10 years was spent at a level 1 trauma hospital. Casey cared for patients undergoing all different high-level procedures and with very critical issues of life-threatening severity. Casey regularly worked closely with the critical care team including the critical care physicians, in order to provide care and treatment to the patients.
Though this is a step away from the bedside, Casey believes nursing advocacy is needed in many other areas and is grateful to be able to provide this for the patients and their loved ones.
