Nurses and Allied Healthcare providers are proud of the quality care they deliver to their patients, but in a world where frivolous lawsuits are on the rise, it’s critically important for these healthcare providers to have their own Malpractice Insurance to respond and protect their reputation when called into question. It’s no longer sufficient to rely on an employer, or treating physician, to provide adequate protection in the event of a claim.
Medical Malpractice Insurance coverage for nurses and allied healthcare providers is often a mystery. Many healthcare professionals believe they’re covered by their employer, or that the malpractice policy covering the physician treating the patient will protect the nurse as well.
While it’s possible that a nurse or allied healthcare professional is covered by their employer, or the attending physician, it’s becoming increasingly common for these healthcare professionals to secure their own medical malpractice insurance policy.
Why? Because nurses and allied healthcare providers are reluctant to rely entirely on coverage, if any, provided by their employer. In short, they want the peace-of-mind provided by an insurance company known for aggressively defending their insured’s against frivolous lawsuits.
Types of healthcare providers eligible for coverage:
- Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA)
- Nurse Practitioner
- Physical Therapist
