Additional Key Findings of Aon's 2010 Hospital Professional Liability and Physician Liability Benchmark Analysis:

  • Claim severity (indemnity and claim-related expenses) continues to increase at a consistent rate of 4 percent annually.  
  • Hospital professional liability claim frequency is growing at a rate of 1 percent annually.
  • For accidents occurring in 2010, hospitals should expect to incur $204 per birth for liability costs associated with obstetrics claims and $6.30 per visit for emergency department claims.  
  • Hospitals are employing more physicians and as a result, the health care industry may experience a shift in claims costs from physician professional liability to hospital professional liability. From 2005 to 2009, the average number of employed physicians per hospital bed increased 12 percent annually.

  • The Hospital Professional Liability and Physician Liability Benchmark Analysis has examined trends in frequency, severity and overall loss rates related to hospital and physician professional liability for the past 11 years. The 2010 analysis includes 119 hospital systems and more than 1,800 facilities, representing 23 percent of the total U.S. hospital industry segment. Findings are subject to the conditions and limitations stated in the report.
