The preferred way would be

stderr <- sqrt(diag(vcov(fm)))

for a single evaluation.  (If you were putting such a calculation
within a large simulation you may want to work harder to tune it up
but this is fine for a single evaluation.)

The obvious next question is about the p-values but that's a sore
point so don't ask. :-)
