Advancing the Footprint in Forensic Nursing includes case/peer review that has considerable potential and is a key component of modern quality care and patient satisfaction. Forensic nursing scope and standards state that participation in chart review, peer review, ongoing education, supervision, and mentoring is essential, and every Forensic Nurse, whether novice or expert, should regularly participate in these activities.
Review of a patient’s forensic case ensures that the evidence collection and injury documentation are correct before going to court for a criminal or civil trial. The focus of this session will be on sexual assault and strangulation cases. Presenters will highlight several cases from a variety of programs and discuss best practices. The cases will be presented to demonstrate the process of peer review, suggestions for improvements, and effective case discussion with input from all. Content Warning: graphic photographs.
