About Us | Teresa Knapp Crawford, RN
After becoming an RN in 1992, Teresa worked in home health for about 2 years, after a short time as a med-surg nurse in a rural hospital. Her career in long term care began in 1994, starting out as Assistant Director of Nursing, then primarily as Director of Nursing. In 2001, Teresa began working as a risk management consultant in long term care reviewing and auditing major systems which could put a facility at greater risk for malpractice litigation or loss of malpractice liability insurance. Although her role was primarily in Louisiana, it did allow her the opportunity to travel to other states to audit assigned facilities.
Teresa’s entry into legal nurse consulting began in the fall of 2015, reviewing product liability cases on a part-time basis. She began working with ALN reviewing LTC cases in November 2016. Trial by fire in the world of long term care for twenty plus years has empowered this Louisiana girl with a vast working knowledge of the industry. This knowledge, combined with ALN support, promises to be an amazing journey.
