i have to agree with trauma here. it is not advisable to discuss on any
level whether or not one has been named in a suit other than to say, "yes, i have" and leave it at that.
being in this field of nursing (legal nursing), i see many nurses named in suits. many nurses are not supported by the facility where they work thus the necessity for liability insurance, as tim pointed out. and, as trauma pointed out, most nurses go through their careers without this being a problem. there are several liability carriers. i suggest www.nso.com
. here you can receive online quotes for rates. others will have suggestions as well.
enter into the field of nursing with anticipation of the good things to come and what you can offer your patients, not with the fear of litigation.
good luck with your career!!!
