What is Nurse liability?
Nursing liability is a perennial risk for all practicing nurses and their employers, and an issue that must not be taken lightly. A nurse can be liable in civil damages for negligence, and so can the nurse's employer.
Is NSO claims made or occurrence?
Your NSO professional liability insurance uses the occurrence form. * Which form you have determines when malpractice claims are covered—and not covered. This becomes important should a competitor attempt to switch you to a claims-made form, as you could experience a gap in protection.
