The importance of Professional Liability insurance for laboratory and pathology technicians
As a laboratory or pathology technician, being detail-oriented is a fundamental part of the job. While you may not work directly with patients, your careful examination and accurate analysis are a vital part of providing personalized care and successful treatment.
It may seem unlikely that you’d personally be named in a malpractice lawsuit, but it can still happen. Despite your training and knowledge, just one misstep could lead to an incorrect course of treatment for a patient, and you could find yourself caught up in litigation.
Lockton Affinity Health’s Professional Liability insurance is tailored exclusively for laboratory and pathology technicians. It covers defense costs and judgments or settlements that result from a claim against you, plus pays you for lost wages while defending a claim.
