Nursing Home Insurance in Duluth and Alpharetta

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 Talbert Insurance Services 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.

Jason Friedlander: Owner TwistSix
I’ve owned a small business for the last 8 years and Larry and his staff have been one of the major reasons we have found success. At every turn, they were there to make sue we were covered, from our Workman’s Comp, Liability, Auto, Life to Umbrella Coverage.
Global Painting & Renovations
Such great customer service! Rates are excellent. I've been a home owner with rental property for over 25 years. By switching to Talbert, it helped me to reduce premiums by bundling auto, home, and condo insurance, while maintaining pretty much the same coverage I was accustomed to! I strongly recommend looking into doing business with these folks.

Home & Auto Customer
If you need Life, Auto, or Renters Insurance go see Larry and his team. I didn't know a thing about life insurance, but after leaving Larry's office, I know I'm in good hands with my policy and that I'm getting expert advice from the best in the biz. Be sure to ask Larry about his "fire wallet"....you'll be amazed!
Jason Michno
I could not ask for a better insurance company! They saved me so much over what I had been paying. When I had a claim they took great care to make sure that I had no down time and I had a check within days to replace the item.
