Liability Insurances for Pharmacists
Professional Indemnity Insurance provides cover for you as a pharmacist for civil claims and disciplinary actions brought against you due to your professional activities. It provides cover against losses claimed by a third party due to alleged or actual negligence or errors in your professional pharmacy services or advice.
Your Professional Indemnity insurance will cover the associated compensation payable to a third party together with your defence costs (which can include legal costs, expert fees).
In addition, your policy will cover legal representation costs associated with disciplinary investigations and proceedings and coronial enquiries associated with your professional practice.
An example of the type of risks you may be faced with as a Pharmacy include claims resulting from dispensing errors, breaches of privacy and investigations/actions brought by AHPRA and other regulatory bodies.
Public Liability Insurance is another type of cover likely to be relevant for pharmacy owners. It is designed to provide protection for you and your pharmacy business in the event a customer, supplier or a member of the public are injured or sustain property damage as a result of your negligent business activities.
For example, a customer slipping over your recently mopped floors or tripping over a poorly placed box of medications, resulting in injury.
Public Liability Insurance
Chances are you’ll have regular contact with clients, contractors and the general public. Public Liability insurance is designed to provide protection for you and your business in the event a customer, supplier or a member of the public is injured or sustains property damage as a result of your negligent business activities.
Other Insurances for Pharmacies
Whilst Professional Indemnity and Public Liability insurance provides cover for legal liabilities arising from your practice as a pharmacist and your business activities there are other elements of your business that may require different types of insurance cover.
