In celebration of National Nurses Week, NSO will be hosting a webinar for Nurses (RNs, LPNs, LVNs)
OVERVIEW:This webinar will explore indemnity and expense payments for professional liability claims on behalf of nurses, RN, LPN and LVNs, insured under the CNA/NSO program during the most recent five-year period, 2011-2015. This program will describe top allegations made against nurses in malpractice lawsuits as well as patient injuries and outcomes.

Selected claims asserted against nurses will be discussed.
• List the leading allegations made against nurses in malpractice lawsuits.
• Define the average cost to defend and the indemnity for nurses in malpractice lawsuits.
• Identify key risk management tools that nurses can incorporate into their practice.
