But let’s see where it comes from.
Startup Insurtech covered today announces the launch of professional indemnity and public liability insurance for Australia’s 350,000 nurses. The addition of professional indemnity and public liability insurance for nurses is included in upcover’s allied health cover banner and offers a comprehensive cover option for nurses (RN or EN), nurse practitioners , inpatient nurses, doulas and nursing students.
Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance for Nurses has been tailored for nurses who require insurance with AHPRA. It covers nurses for activities including IV infusions, cosmetic injectables, bowel cleansing and respite care services and events such as physical injury, errors of judgment, trips, slips and falls, negligence, defamation, bad professional advice, third party damages and breaches of health privacy legislation (for loss of medical records or personal customer or patient information) and has limits of up to $20 million available.
Many nurses may not be aware that the insurance provided by their union is often just a safety net. This is “umbrella” insurance that only provides coverage if nurses have another insurance policy, either from their employer or if they are self-employed with their own policy, which does not respond to a claim. Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance for Nurses provides comprehensive insurance needed for members of a nursing union umbrella insurance and will ensure that nurses are covered when they need it most.
Professional indemnity and indemnity insurance for nurses has been adapted for both the self-employed and the private business, and now for employees who are required to take out insurance from their employer. This is the first time covered has offered a product directly to employees, meaning no ABN is required when purchasing. This means more nurses will be able to easily access the cover they need. The policy provides cover Australia-wide, at home or is suitable for full-time, part-time or self-employed nurses and covers whether they work remotely, provide telehealth services or in an institution.
