Nursing Malpractice Insurance

CM&F has provided nursing liability insurance since 1947!

What is Nursing Malpractice Insurance?

Nursing malpractice insurance is insurance coverage designed to cover the legal expenses, as well as protect personal assets, of nursing professionals in case of a malpractice claim. In the event of a malpractice claim, whether the accusation is true or not, nursing professionals could be expected to pay large amounts in legal or settlement fees. The best protection against a damaging lawsuit or high fees is professional malpractice insurance. As a nursing professional, your employer’s policy may prioritize their interests over yours. Individual professional liability insurance will protect your career as well as your personal assets.

What Risks Do I Face That Warrants Malpractice Insurance for Nursing Professionals?

Nursing professionals work with patients in a variety of ways. Many are responsible for working with or treating patients directly which means they are at risk of being named in a malpractice suit if something goes wrong. Nursing professionals often interact with patients more than any other medical professional in a hospital or office. With so much direct exposure to patients, nursing professionals need to be able to properly do their job without constant fear of potential litigation. Nursing professional liability insurance is the best way to protect, as well as ease the mind of nursing professionals.

What is the difference between malpractice insurance and professional liability insurance?

These terms are both interchangeable. Malpractice insurance is a liability insurance specifically designed to protect medical professionals.

Does having my own individual professional liability insurance policy make me a more likely target for a lawsuit?

Absolutely not. In fact your insurance status is not discovered until you have been named in a lawsuit. At that point you are ALWAYS better off having your own individual liability protection to defend you against any allegations.

Does my employer’s professional liability insurance cover me?

Most employers do provide some level of malpractice insurance for their employees. The only way to know for certain is to ask for a certificate of insurance every year to confirm that you are a "named insured." Millions of medical professionals purchase personal professional liability insurance, also known as medical malpractice insurance, protection in addition to what their employer provides. Coverage that is portable from job to job, protects your license, your personal assets and financial future is ALWAYS the best option. CM&F offers both individual liability insurance and group liability insurance.

I’m starting my own company. Do you have a policy that will cover my company for malpractice?

Absolutely. We have liability coverage for individuals, sole-proprietors, clinics, schools and groups. Get in touch with us to discuss your needs.
