Janice McIntosh, Legal Nurse Consultant

Our founder, Janice McIntosh, has a keen eye for details and compliance, which sets our practice apart.

An example of being detailed-oriented:

As the Quality Assurance Director for three different home health agencies, McIntosh ensured they met or exceeded Medicare/Medicaid standards of care.

An example of screening for merit:

Working on a case involving a home healthcare agency and identifying that they failed to adequately train their healthcare aids that then resulted in catastrophic failure.

An example of interpreting relevance to a case:
