contract language is confusing

I am being offered a medical billing job where I will be billing for speech and occupational therapy services. I will be billing via computer from my home. The owner is asking me to sign a contract and one paragraph is very wordy and confusing. She also wants me to get professional liability insurance, which I am willing to do if it is necessary. Can someone tell me what this paragraph means? Pasted here:

 (my name) shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless (company name), except in cases of intentional fraud, from and against any and all losses, damages, costs and expenses including attorneys' fees, liabilities, fines and penalties resulting from any and all claims, proceedings or actions of whatsoever kind or nature whether or not finally adjudicated including any settlement thereof, arising out of or in connection with or on account of the acts or omissions of either or its agents, officers and employees.
