Why do I need my own Professional Indemnity cover?

As a nurse you are exposed to risks every day.

A patient could have an adverse reaction to treatment. You might follow the right procedures but a patient accuses you of wrongdoing. No matter where you work, claims can be made not just against your employer, but against you as an individual. Even if you’re found not at fault, the cost of defending a claim against you personally can be financially and emotionally crippling. In some cases, relying on your employer’s policy could conflict with your own best interests.

What does Guild Insurance cover me for?

When you’re insured with Guild, you’ll have protection that meets national nursing requirements. Guild offers you financial peace of mind and support by mitigating risk as you perform your activities as registered nurse or nurse practitioner. Guild ensures your interests are best served when a conflict arises between your version of events and that of another practitioner or your employer.

With a choice of $20 Million, $10 Million or $5 Million liability options, you’ll even enjoy the convenience of having it all in one policy:

1. Professional Indemnity 
Broad cover for financial loss caused in connection with your nursing.

2. Public Liability 
Cover for accidents that cause injury or property damage because of you performing your job.

3. Products Liability
Protects you against liability for damages caused by goods sold or supplied by you in your role.

It’s always the little extras in your policy that can make all the difference such as:

  • Run-off cover which protects you when you’ve ceased nursing permanently
  • Cover for legal costs and expenses associated with complaints to your registration body, disciplinary proceedings or a coronial inquiry
  • Choice of full-time, part-time, self-employed or employed cover
  • Nil basic excess on liability claims
  • Pay by the month at no extra cost
  • 24/7 claims support
