Medical malpractice insurance is specialist cover for healthcare professionals. It offers protection for accidents such as bodily injury or even death to people in your care, spanning reasons such as:
- Delayed diagnosis
- Delays in referral
- Missed diagnosis
- Physical or mental harm to a person under your care
Professional indemnity insurance is often mandatory for healthcare professionals. It provides protection in relation to claims for financial loss caused by your errors or omissions.
For example, if you were to accidentally incorrectly measure a client for specialist tailored equipment, which resulted in them being unable to use or return the equipment, professional indemnity insurance may be able to recover this cost.
Public liability insurance offers financial and legal protection in the event that someone is injured or their property damaged accidentally by you while you're working.
For example, if you were to accidentally injure a client when bathing them in excessively hot water, or damage their property, by forgetting to turn off the tap after bathing them, public liability insurance may cover the costs associated with this damage.
