The importance of Professional Liability insurance for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians
As a Pharmacist you play an indispensable role in providing optimum health care and improving the quality of life of your community through medicine. But despite holding a PharmD degree or years of practice, errors in dispensing medication happen every day.
That’s why as a pharmacist or pharmacy technician, having a pharmacology liability insurance policy is an essential part of your practice. Just one erroneous action can have devastating effects—a claim of negligence or malpractice against you can land you in court, cost thousands of dollars to defend and keep you from work. Even if you’re cleared of negligence, being named in a lawsuit can leave an unfavorable impression on your community, affecting the business of the pharmacy and your future.
Lockton Affinity Health’s Professional Liability insurance is tailored exclusively for pharmacists and pharmacy 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.
