I have a question about malpractice insurance. Do you guys think it's a good idea to purchase our own (like through NSO)? I had my own for the past year since I've been working in an office rather than a hospital, but now that I'll soon be in a hospital I'm not sure if I should renew it or not. I've heard some people say it's always a good idea to have our own. I've also heard some people say not to buy it because people could go after us if something happens rather than the hospital. Any advice is appreciate
What I have highlighted is the biggest myth in nursing and here is why.
A doctor's malpractice insurance is thousands of dollars per year.
A nurses, less than $200
You know why? BECAUSE WE ARE RARELY SUED.
Massive, massive myth!
