A new report published by the Nurses Service Organization (NSO), a division of Aon Affinity and CNA, finds that malpractice claims against nurses are on the rise. The report, Nurse Professional Liability Exposures: 2015 Claim Report Update, said that more than $90 million was paid in nurses’ malpractice claims over a five-year period. The nurses included registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and licensed vocational nurses.
