Nursing Home Insurance in Charleston SC & Mt Pleasant SC

Is your nursing home properly safeguarded against risks? If not, you could face charges from a variety of sources. Nursing home insurance can provide reimbursement if you end up having to pay for problems out-of-pocket.

Many nursing homes face liability issues from the following problems:

  • Negligent Supervision: Elderly patients often need to be supervised, and some patients may even need to be monitored 24/7 to help avoid self-inflicted injury. Stepping away for just a few minutes could leave a patient alone long enough to hurt themselves. Note that supervision is not limited to watching patients. In many cases, employees must actively check for potential problems (places where patients could slip and fall, whether or not patients have been able to get up and move around, etc.) in order to fulfill their legal responsibility to patients.
  • Negligent Hiring: Most employees at nursing homes genuinely mean well; however, sometimes negligent hiring occurs. Employees may actively abuse or neglect the facility's patients, and the nursing home could be held liable for not adequately screening potential employees. Additional training after hiring (or during the hiring process) can help mitigate this, but negligent hiring coverage provides an additional level of security if an employee doesn't work out.
  • Failure to Keep the Facility Safe: Whether it's removing water on the floor or managing patients with an inclination to violence, employees of nursing homes are expected to keep the facility safe for all inhabitants.

Nursing Home Malpractice Insurance

As facilities that provide medical care, nursing homes fall under local and federal regulations regarding the protection of patients. Substandard care can cause serious harm to patients, and in this situation, charges could be brought against the facility or whomever was treating the patient in question.

Medical malpractice insurance can help make a crisis manageable, giving your facility the time it needs to make necessary improvements to ensure the problem doesn't reoccur. Different types of care have different levels of risk, so talk a McKenna Agency, Inc. agent today about what kind of medical care your nursing home offers. Once we know exactly what services you provide to your patients, we'll work with you to find a nursing home insurance policy that meets your needs.

Testimonials

My husband and I have been working with Wes for the last year. We met with several financial advisors before deciding on the McKenna Agency and definitely felt like we made the right choice after our first meeting. Wes “roots” for our financial goals while giving sound advice along the way. We have never felt more at peace financially (been married 6+years) and feel secure in our financial future. Wes has been a GREAT resource for us and we highly recommend him, his staff and agency.

I want to thank the McKenna Agency, Inc. and especially to Mr. Ell Brown for helping me with my insurance. As I was preparing to go there I felt as if I was going to my doctor for bad news, but to my surprise what at great experience meeting a young man with a wonderful smile to greet me. Mr. Brown discussed some options and prices of two of his products; he explained to me what I would need to do. We have both worked diligently preparing me to be a new member of the McKenna family. The slogan reads “Nationwide is on Your Side”, says it all. The pain is gone and I will continue to look forward to having a long-lasting relationship. Thank you again Nationwide and your wonderful Mr. Brown.
