All OPSWA PSWs carry a ONE Million Dollar Liability Insurance

Protect YOU - the PSW

As more news coverage is given to home care and the claims that can arise from it, it will become common for a potential client to ask to see proof of your liability insurance prior to hiring you, just as everyone asks to see proof of insurance before hiring a contractor or roofer. However, it’s not just PSW’s in the homecare sector that benefit from liability insurance. Nursing homes are beginning to manage and mitigate their risk exposure by transferring liability to the PSW via the employment contract. Look for the phrases waiver of subjugation or hold harmless in your contact. Even if no such clause exists, the patient or their family could elect to name the PSW personally in addition to the nursing home in the lawsuit. The nursing home will only cover their defense costs, not the PSW’s.

By obtaining your own insurance you are purchasing peace of mind that your interests are protected and the personal assets you’ve worked hard to earn will not be seized and you won’t be facing bankruptcy.

The Errors & Omissions coverage is included in your OPSWA membership with $1,000,000 limit which can be increased for as low as $10 and the Commercial General Liability Insurance can be purchased for as low as $50.

Join today for as little as $15.00 a month. Protect and INVEST in YOU - the PSW
