As a healthcare professional, do you ever use your skills and knowledge in settings that do not involve direct patient care? More and more often, healthcare providers are participating in educational and consulting activities in addition to - or instead of - direct patient care. Some of these activities could include:
- Medical administration
- Legal consultation
- Speaking at seminars
- Teaching or acting as an expert witness
However, did you know these activities may not be covered under your current Professional Liability insurance policy?
Like hands-on patient care, these consulting services activities carry unique legal risks. Even providing information or advice to a large number of patients or caregivers may be increasing your exposure to the risk of a lawsuit.
