Important Insurances an Aged Care Facility Should Consider

The right Aged Care Insurance policy ensures that you have peace of mind knowing that if you ever need to make a claim, or have a claim made against you, you won’t have to worry about how it will impact your finances, or your reputation.

Because of the operation’s potential size, scale, location,, the public liability risk is significant. Aged Care Facilities can have a constant flow of visitors to and from the premises in potentially greater numbers. There’s an added risk since the clients are generally handicapped.

Claims for actual or alleged sexual abuse, sexual harassment, intimidation, molestation, and indecent exposure are not standard and must be requested to be added to your insurance. There are just a few insurers who will provide this coverage, and it comes at an additional charge.

Claims of negligence or wrongdoing expose aged care facilities to enormous risk which can have severe reputational and financial ramifications. Inaccurate professional advice or neglect can potentially result in significant bodily harm, illness, and financial loss to your clients, and as a result, to you and your aged care business.

A tailored and specialised policy will protect you from claims of malpractice.

If an insured event were to occur, such as a fire, finding an acceptable replacement location is difficult because of the particular size requirements. It would also be very expensive.
Your Aged Care Business should have a contingency plan in place in the event that the site is seriously damaged and that other alternatives have been found to minimise income loss and the possibility of residents moving while the property is being repaired. Business Interruption can pay for the temporary accomodation, and increased costs associated that are incurred after an insured event.

Theft in an aged care faciliity can come in many different forms. From theft of medications, clients personal belongings, internal employee fraud, and theft of any cash left on site. There are multiple insurance options to protect against theft, but ultimately, having procedures and methods in place to prevent theft is recommended.

Property Insurance can cover your physical and tangible assets such as buildings, equipment, furniture against natural perils such as fire, storm, flood, vandalism, glass breakage etc.
