Nursing Insurance in Rancho Cucamonga CA & Temecula CA

As a nurse, your proximity to patients means you're legally responsible for what happens in your presence. Unfortunately, even when you're doing your best, dissatisfied patients may hold you liable for problems outside of your ability to control.

Nursing insurance provides coverage for claims that go beyond what your school or employer provides (including incidents they don't cover or that exceed their policy limits), allowing you to have a sense of security and perform your job with the confidence that comes from being protected. Common uses for this coverage include:

  • Defendant expenses
  • HIPAA fines or penalties
  • License protection
  • Lost wages
  • Reimbursing patients for losses they may sustain while in your care

It is important to keep in mind that your workplace's insurance will not protect you from every problem that can occur. For example, if a complaint is filed with your local board of nursing and you need to fight it, you may be on your own unless you have individual insurance that can reimburse you for your expenses.

Nursing Malpractice Insurance

Accusations of malpractice have been on the rise, particularly as nurses are required to take on more responsibility. That's all the more reason to get an individual insurance plan as soon as you can, because the coverage provided by your practice or hospital may not be enough to pay for a malpractice suit.

The best way to obtain coverage against malpractice suits is to talk with a Cornerstone Commercial & Personal Insurance Services agent about what you do in your workplace and what kind of risks or exposures you may face. Different offices ask nurses to do different tasks, and you don't need to pay for coverage on anything that's not your responsibility.

You may need insurance of this type even if you are not a nurse, but are performing any of the tasks normally associated with nursing. This includes volunteering to help care for others, with or without a license. If you're unsure whether or not you need nursing insurance in your current situation, talk to one of our agents and find out for sure.

I am in the property management business and have been involved with Phil and his staff at Cornerstone Insurance for well over a decade. When I first met Phil I was impressed with his knowledge of his industry and his concerned and friendly approach with his clients. I soon began referring my clients to him for their insurance needs and many have been Cornerstone clients for several years. When ever I've needed to deal with a claim, the Cornerstone staff has been on top of the issue and I couldn't be happier with their coverage and customer service.
