Providing care to vulnerable people is a rewarding job, but it also comes with challenges that other small businesses don’t have to face. This is because there are many risks associated with care homes, from third-party claims to accidental damage.
Having insurance in place is not just an option when you run a care home, but absolutely necessary, as is finding the right insurance broker.
Take a look at how we can help you get the right care home insurance for your needs.
There are several benefits from taking out the right care home insurance policies, with the main one being that your business is protected against any eventuality. “Normal” small business insurance is not enough because you’re offering specialised care, so we can help you identify the risks your business faces and create a bespoke insurance policy that helps you every step of the way.
Not only should you have policies like public liability, contents’ insurance and building insurance in place, but also medical malpractice insurance and policies that cover the residents’ and staff’s personal effects, for example.
Medical malpractice cover is crucial because it keeps you safe in case one of your employees makes a mistake, such as when giving medicine, or if someone files a claim of neglect. This type of insurance is specific to businesses like care homes due to the delicate nature of the work you do.
Other covers you may want to consider include computer equipment, management liability, products’ liability and tenants’ improvement – the latter one is designed to protect your care home against damage or loss of improvements made for the benefit of the residents.
