What type of work do OB/GYNs do?

OB/GYN is a commonly used abbreviation. OB is short for obstetrics or for an obstetrician. GYN is short for gynecology or for a gynecologist. Gynecology and obstetrics is one of the 14 surgical specialties recognized by the The American College of Surgeons.

Gynecology is focused largely on disorders of the female reproductive organs in their pregnant and non-pregnant state. An OB/GYN is therefore a physician who both treats diseases of the female reproductive organs and delivers babies.

The OB/GYN goes through four years of specialized residency training in areas dealing with preconceptional health, pregnancy, labor and childbirth, postpartum care, genetics, genetic counseling and prenatal diagnosis.

Training in gynecology also covers women's general health, including care of reproductive organs, breasts and sexual function.

Screening for cancer at multiple sites is performed or initiated by the OB/GYN.

Gynecology also includes management of hormonal disorders, treatment of infections, and training in surgery to correct or treat pelvic organ and urinary tract problems to include cancer of the reproductive organs.

Why do OB/GYNs need malpractice insurance?

OB/GYN is one of the riskiest and most expensive medical specialties to insure. OB/GYNs are often the target of medical malpractice lawsuits and the settlements, when made, are substantial.

Some of the most common causes resulting in malpractice claims against OB/GYNs are neurological impairment, including cerebral palsy, stillbirths, and shoulder dystocia with brachial plexus nerve injury.

Once a claim is reported, it can take years before it is resolved. Malpractice insurance brings peace of mind to OB/GYNs by knowing that if a lawsuit is brought against them, they will be protected by their insurance company.

What coverage does a malpractice insurance policy provide OB/GYNs?

A medical malpractice insurance policy is usually written on a claims made basis. The typical policy provides coverage for damages and defense in connection with covered claims reported to the insurance company during the policy period and resulting from a medical incident which took place on or after the retroactive date.

As every medical malpractice insurance policy is different, it is important for OB/GYNs to review the policy exclusions and the additional coverages offered before selecting an insurance company.
