Improving Documentation to Prevent Malpractice: Everything the NP Needs to Know


The number of malpractice claims made against many health care professionals is on the rise. It is essential that the nurse practitioner take every possible step to avoid being at the receiving end of a malpractice claim, including enhancing documentation. Dr. Wendy Wright, a family nurse practitioner with extensive experience in reviewing cases for medical malpractice attorneys, will share information that every nurse practitioner must hear. 



Wendy is a 1992 graduate of the Adult Primary Care Nurse Practitioner program at Simmons College in Boston, Massachusetts and completed a family nurse practitioner post-master’s program in 1995.  She is an adult and family nurse practitioner and the owner of two nurse practitioner owned and operated clinics within New Hampshire. 

She is the founder of the NH Chamber of Entrepreneurial Nurse Practitioners, an organization designed to assist nurse practitioners with independent practice issues.  She has been a medical media spokesperson for numerous companies and has appeared on radio, television, and in print magazines.  Wendy is frequently consulted by malpractice attorneys around the area of clinical practice and has worked on more than 100 malpractice cases involving nurses and nurse practitioners. She is the Past President of NPACE and the Senior lecturer for Fitzgerald Health Education Associates.
