First Aid Insurance

By law, any sufficiently sized organisation or event requires a trained first aider to deal with potential medical emergencies, and whilst such occurrences are rare and often relatively benign – a sprained ankle or minor cut for instance – they can sometimes be rather more serious. Qualified first aiders also tend to instinctively try to help even in situations where their skills are not officially recognised, for instance as a passer-by or as a Samaritan act.

If your first aid treatment went wrong, you could be sued

Any first aid or other medical treatment that is delivered in a non-professional capacity, or outside of the premises or timescales in which you are a nominated first aider, can mean that you run the risk of being sued for malpractice. Ordinarily at the workplace or event in which you are qualified to deliver first aid you may be covered under your employer’s or associated organisation’s first aider insurance. However when you are off the clock or attempting to give care beyond your professional remit you may still be liable.
