Why Nurse Practitioners Need Malpractice Insurance
Nurse Practitioners are taking care of more complex patients and are being given increasingly complex responsibilities.
Most ARNPs have experienced a situation where, if something went wrong, the patient, or other staff, looked to assign blame, whether appropriate or not, to the Nurse Practitioner.
Your employer’s insurance coverage may not be enough to protect you from the extensive damage of a claim brought against you.
If you are faced with litigation, it may help to remember that some of the most skilled and caring medical professionals have been sued, but you don’t have to face a lawsuit on your own.
Your own coverage assures that you have a team of experts, working on your behalf, to mitigate the extensive damages that lawsuit can have on your livelihood.
How to Choose the Right Policy
Because Nurse Practitioners serve clients in varied fields, with varying risks, each individual Nurse Practitioner’s needs are different.
The Bill Beatty Insurance Agency has a knowledgable staff that can help you find the policy that meets your needs and fits your budget.
Having Nurse Practitioner Insurance in place means that, if a claim is made against you, even if it is unfounded, you can turn it over to a defense team that will work on your behalf, minimizing the cost and stress that accompanies a lawsuit.
