We live in a society where people have become more health conscious, which has led them to seek the help of doctors and physicians with their weight loss issues. Millions of people in the U.S. suffer from obesity and thousands are having surgeries to get rid of excess weight. As a health care provider working in a weight loss center, it’s important to consider investing in medical malpractice insurance coverage for you or your clinic.
Some of the medical weight loss procedures that surgeons and physicians perform such as gastric bypass surgery or the prescribing of weight loss pills carry certain health risks for patients. Even nurses or other health care professionals who are involved in the process of a surgery are susceptible to being sued for malpractice.
Insurance covers you if a mistake were to occur and a patient decides to sue you for malpractice. You avoid paying out of pocket court costs, legal expenses, and damages to the patient if a judge or jury finds you guilty.
