What Risks Do I Face as A Rehab Assistant That Warrants Malpractice Insurance?

Rehab assistants work with either a physical or occupational therapist to implement a rehab plan to improve the motor skills of a patient. The main role of a rehab assistant is to help the primary therapist in whatever manner will benefit the progress of the patient. They can perform a variety of tasks, including overseeing patient activities, instructing patients in the use of equipment, documenting patient progress, or managing low level patient activities. Due to the nature of their work as well as their direct interaction with patients, rehab assistants can find themselves at the center of a malpractice claim. To ensure the safety of their career as well as their personal assets, fitness or rehabilitation professionals should have the appropriate form of malpractice insurance.

Why Do I Need Rehab Assistant Malpractice Insurance?

Liability insurance for rehab assistants is designed to protect your personal assets or cover your expenses in the event of a medical malpractice lawsuit or liability claim. Relying solely on an employer’s rehab assistant malpractice insurance to protect personal assets from a lawsuit may cause professionals undue hardship. It is important to have separate rehab assistant liability insurance from your employer because an employer’s policy may focus on their financial liability first, leaving little to no protection for you depending on damages incurred. If named in a lawsuit, individuals could be exposed, resulting in financially devastating legal costs. Our rehab assistant liability insurance policy protects healthcare professionals for amounts that would otherwise need to be paid as a result of a medical liability claim arising out of a covered medical incident.
