volunteer nurse liability

Posted

Specializes in psych, addictions, hospice, education.

Hello everyone. I volunteered, for awhile, as a hospice nurse. I was concerned about liability as a volunteer. I don't know that I was protected by any agency policy or insurance. What do you think? Input would be appreciated since I'm thinking of going back to the job.

I volunteer as a pre-hospital RN on my rural fire dept. I too am an APN. I always carry my own malpractice insurance. It just seems safer to me.
