Frequently Asked Questions

When do I need a Nurse Case Manager?

You should immediately assign a field nurse case manager in any of the following situations:

  • Catastrophic injuries such as Traumatic Brain Injury, Spinal Cord Injury, Amputation, and Burn Injury.
  • Complex medical conditions that have the potential to negatively impact recovery:  hypertension, diabetes, obesity, age and prior injuries.
  • “Creeping Catastrophic” claims ……  someone is just not improving as would be expected based on the initial diagnosis.

How do I know if the Nurse Case Manager is qualified?

The Nurse Case Manager should be a Licensed Registered Nurse with extensive clinical experience. Look for professional designations such as Certified Case Manager and Certified Registered Rehabilitation Nurse which demonstrate that the nurse case manager has met the highest level of industry standards and clinical expertise.

What should I expect from a Nurse Case Manager?

A Nurse Case Manager will advocate, communicate and manage resources to facilitate high quality and cost-effective care. A good case manager is identifying treatment options before you need them so there is no delay in treatment. Imagine if you are discharged from the hospital late on a Friday afternoon and once you get home, you realize that your medication or your durable medical equipment hasn’t been delivered…a field nurse case manager will ensure that this doesn’t happen.
