n-act> AAEM

 

 

"As physicians and other health care professionals, and the facilities in
which they provide their services, continue their heroic efforts to stop the
spread of COVID-19 while caring for COVID-19 patients as well as meeting the
needs of other patients, they will remain vulnerable to the threat of
unwarranted and unfair lawsuits. We therefore strongly urge Congress to
consider targeted and limited liability protections for physicians, other
health care professionals, and the facilities in which they practice as they
continue their efforts to treat COVID-19 under unprecedented conditions."
