Nurse Practitioner 2012 Liability Update
In collaboration with NSO, CNA is dedicated to educating nurse practitioners about risk. In support of that effort, we present this report, which examines CNA nurse practitioner claims that closed between January 1, 2007 and December 31, 2011, and identifies current liability patterns and trends. Using this report, nurse practitioners can better understand the risks and challenges they may encounter on a daily basis, evaluate their practices in relation to the claims and losses experienced by their peers, and modify their clinical practice to enhance patient safety while minimizing liability exposure.
