doctor, they are licensed to prescribe medications.

surgeons inland marine floater. The business interruption exposure can be minimized if the ophthalmologist has
arranged for temporary facilities with another ophthalmologist.
Inland Marine Exposure
Is the physicians and surgeons floater items. This coverage will include items that the
ophthalmologist may take off site to handle emergencies. It can also be extended to include all office furnishings. An ophthalmologists office will generally include sophisticated computer and medical equipment. All electrical wiring
must be up to code and equipment properly maintained. A small fire, which produces smoke, can cause a lot of

performs, the more chance of professional loss. Needles and other equipment must be sterilized and sanitized to
prevent the spread of blood-borne infectious diseases such as hepatitis, HIV and AIDS. On-site surgery must be
closely monitored, with an experienced trained individual administering and monitoring the use of the anesthetic.
Training and safety equipment should be in place to prevent exposure to radiation when performing X-rays.
Florida automobile exposure is generally limited to hired and nonownership liability for employees running errands unless the ophthalmologist travels to client locations such as nursing homes, hospitals and surgery centers. In that case, the radius of the area driven as well as the age, record, and training of the driver should be checked. Overall, however, the exposure should be relatively light.
Exposure is from possible transmission of disease from a patient. Gloves and masks should be worn at all times when working around any bodily fluids.
