Nutritionist malpractice insurance provides nutritionists with the coverage needed in case of a lawsuit or claim. As nutrition dietetic technicians see their roles in healthcare expand, the risk in being named in a malpractice suit continues to climb, making malpractice insurance for nutritionists more important than ever.
Nutritionists counsel patients on nutritional issues and are experts in the use of food and nutrition to promote health and manage disease. Using trained expertise, nutritionists advise people on what to eat in order to lead a healthy lifestyle or achieve a specific health-related goal. Due to the responsibilities of this occupation, having the right amount of nutritionist malpractice insurance coverage is essential. The important work of a nutritionist includes risks of potential negligence claims.
Relying solely on an employer’s malpractice insurance to protect personal assets from a lawsuit may cause professionals undue hardship. If named in a lawsuit, nutritionists could be exposed, resulting in financially devastating legal costs. CM&F’S nutritionist liability insurance is designed to protect personal assets and cover legal expenses in the event of a malpractice lawsuit. This insurance covers amounts that you would otherwise be legally obligated to pay as a result of a professional liability claim arising out of a covered medical incident, whether the accusations are proven true or not.
