"Worsening economic conditions in 2008 may have influenced individuals to assert claims against hospital systems," said Erik Johnson, health care practice leader for Aon's Actuarial and Analytics Practice and author of the analysis.

  • Claim severity, including both indemnity and defense costs, continues to increase at a consistent rate and is projected to increase by four percent annually.
  • One out of every four claims and 24 percent of hospital professional liability costs are associated with hospital acquired conditions such as infections and injuries, medication errors, objects left in surgery and pressure ulcers.
  • In 2010, hospitals can expect to incur liability costs of $181.00 per birth in the Obstetrics Unit and $7.20 per visit in the Emergency Department.
