Respiratory Therapists are treating more complex patients and have more responsibilities than ever before.
With the increased responsibility, comes the increased risk of a malpractice claim being made against you.
Some of the claims made against Respiratory Therapists include:
- Airway management error
- Medication error
- Infection control error
- Missed or incorrect treatments
If a claim is made against you, even if it is unfounded, the cost of having to defend a lawsuit is high, both financially and emotionally.
Your employer’s insurance may not cover you if you are named in a lawsuit. Your employer’s insurance is in place to protect your employer.
A lawsuit can take from two months, to two or more years, to resolve. Your own Respiratory Therapist Malpractice Insurance provides you with a team of experts, who work for you, to protect your license and your livelihood and minimize the stress that accompanies a lawsuit.
