NSO and CNA’s new liability claim report, Nurse Profes­sional Liability Exposure Claim Report: 4th Edition: Minimizing Risk, Achieving Excel­lence, addresses some of nurses’ most common profes­sional liability concerns, including emerging risks and ways that nurses can protect themselves from liability exposures. Using case studies and claim data, nurses can examine top areas of liability through the experi­ences of your peers. Most impor­tantly, this report provides you with immedi­ately imple­mentable practices that you can use to help prevent or defend against malprac­tice allega­tions, while also enhancing patient safety.


  • List the leading allega­tions made against Nurses in malprac­tice lawsuits.
  • Define the average incurred expense for Nurses in a malprac­tice lawsuit.
  • Identify key risk manage­ment tools Nurses can incor­po­rate into their practice.
