Nurse Practitioner Malpractice Insurance
All of us at The Doctors' Insurance Agency understand how to work toward obtaining the right fit of Malpractice Insurance for Nurse Practitioners. Our agency has been working with physicians, facilities and allied healthcare providers to find insurance solutions for 25 years.
Nurse practitioners are firmly utilized in today's healthcare system and with a shortage of primary care physicians, population growth and more aging patients who require treatment this trend will continue to grow. Additionally, nurse practitioner roles have expanded over the years from routine medical services to complicated and specialized services for hospitals and medical practices across the country. With expanding roles and demands on providing quality care to a growing population comes increase risk exposure. A better-informed public with heightened outcome expectations create an environment where healthcare professionals are more vulnerable to liability issues. Increased risk exposures also come with the use of new technology and the greater use of electronic health records.
Nurse Practitioner Owned Clinics
The primary function of your professional liability policy is to defend and indemnify you against legal actions arising out of negligent acts, real or perceived, in your role as a healthcare provider. Many nurse practitioners rely on their employers to provide coverage, which can leave them exposed in a way that an individual policy would not. Your own policy ensures that you are personally protected regardless of job changes and protects you against any potential conflicts of interest between employers and coworkers.
Whether you are working full time or part time, you can choose limits of liability you feel most comfortable carrying. In addition to professional liability insurance , the carrier we use provides additional coverages which include:
- Workplace/Premises Liability
- Commercial General Liability
- Good Samaritan
- Employment Practice Liability
