Mississippi Malpractice Premiums for Full Time Employed Registered Nurses
The State of Mississippi passed tort reform in 2002 that has helped greatly to hold down premiums. The state allows claims to be brought up to two years after the act. There are special provisions for minors and those judged incompetent. Children under the age of six have two years past their sixth birthday while those mentally disabled have two years from this disability being removed.
For acts that were not committed as part of a “common plan to commit a tortious act” nurses should only be held liable for a portion of the judgement equal to their percent of negligence.
