The importance of Professional Liability insurance for nurses

From preventive care to treatment of every ailment known to man, the scope of services nurses perform is remarkable. As one of the most respected and fastest-growing professions, nursing is also an occupation that’s seen an increase in malpractice claims in recent years.

Why nurses need personal coverage

You may have employer-provided coverage, but in many cases, it doesn’t provide an adequate amount of protection for you personally if you are faced with defending yourself against a claim. A single claim can cost thousands of dollars, interrupt your course of work and tarnish your reputation—even if you’ve done nothing wrong.

The easiest way to ensure that sense of security is with nurses liability insurance. A personal Professional Liability insurance policy provides coverage that protects you if you are named in a malpractice claim.

This Professional Liability coverage from Lockton Affinity Health is the smart choice for nurses.

Coverage is provided by an excess/surplus lines insurer which is not licensed by or subject to the supervision of the insurance department of your state of residence. Policy coverage forms and rates are not subject to regulation by the insurance department of your state of residence. Excess/Surplus lines insurers do not generally participate in state guaranty funds and therefore insureds are not protected by such funds in the event of the insurer’s insolvency.
