Are you asking if you would be personally liable? You are a nurse or other employee at the facility?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I was a nurse there about 2.5 years ago and I'm asking what usually happens in these kinds of cases
Expert:  Infolawyer replied 7 months ago.

Normally the claim proceeds against the employer only which notifies its insurance carrier who defends the employer and employee and eventually settles the claims or manages to get it dismissed. You want to confirm the employer is covering this and indemnifying you as its employee so you need not worry about it. Kindly rate me positively. Thank you.
