Insurance: what are the risks specific to the Aged & Community Care Sector?

Fire and other perils can vary depending on the extent of residential services offered. The more extensive kitchen and restuarant facilities offered at a particular location will enhance the exposure.

Product Liability is an exposure where food service or medical supplies such as prescription drugs are provided.

Public Liability is always a key risk for this industry sector. The majority of claims may relate to slips and falls; however, the frailty of many of your residents and/or visitors can lead to significant personal injuries. This risk increases if your facility hosts swimming, gymnasium and other associated activities. The major risk faced by this sector is large scale loss of life due to fire therefore this exposure to risk must be managed accordingly.

The Business Interruption risk for this sector is quite high and appropriate indemnity periods need to be properly assessed. Should events turn for the worse, a large scale residential home will take sometime to find alternative premises and receive the appropriate permits to rebuild. This can lead to a blow out in expenses related to temporary relocation of residents or permanent losses of revenue or bonds.

Professional Liability risk is considered to be high due to various services provided including medication management and patient care.

Cyber Risk is now an ever-present risk in all industry sectors. Due to the sensitive nature of personal health information that may be stored, this area of risk needs to be managed with care.
