Update – 5 Sep 2020

Today I completed a MAMMOTH 28 claim Permanent Impairment Assessment for a young Veteran who was medically discharged. This took 2 days of taking a history, examining, assessing investigations, measuring ranges of motion and grip strength, and integrating all of this into 2 separate comprehensive reports, which we submitted to DVA a few days later.

I like to write reports in my own format as well as doing the DVA paperwork, as this way we produce a watertight report taht covers with the intent of the assessment as well as the required DVA paperwork. It is helpful for the narrative, and also to show the degree of fidelity that is achieved with the nuances of the DVA Permanent Impairment Assessment.
