Insurance For Therapists & Complementary Medicine Practitioners

It is not a frequent occurrence for therapists or practitioners of complementary medicine to be required to deliver emergency care to patients, customers or clients, but such incidents can and do happen. Any care given as part of your job will ordinarily be covered against malpractice by your employer’s insurance or your professional indemnity, but this will not necessarily apply to care given outside of your professional remit.

Are you covered for giving emergency treatment?

A possible example could be someone suffering from sudden medical difficulties either caused by a procedure you are carrying out, or unrelated to it, that you may be unqualified to treat. Doing something is almost always better than doing nothing, and so most people will try to help however they can. Unfortunately, in this increasingly litigious culture in which we live, there are more and more cases of people being sued for attempting to do exactly this. Another example could be using your skills as a passer-by at the scene of an accident, known as a Samaritan act.
