Professional Liability Insurance (PLI)
By the terms of our comprehensive PLI policy, there are no specific exclusions relating to transmission of a virus or disease for insured sonographers during the delivery of their professional services, except for circumstances involving alleged or actual abuse. However, this would not be the case if a sonographer were proven to be negligent. In this pandemic scenario, this might consist of a failure to sanitize properly resulting in the transmission of a virus, continuing to work while feeling unwell and transmitting the virus, or failing to self-isolate following travel or exposure to the virus. The onus to prove negligence is placed on those making a complaint. Questions may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org .
