NYACP-MedQuest IM Board Review Question and Answer of the week
August 6, 2020
NYS Rolls Back Portions of Civil and Criminal Liability Protections Extended to Physicians, Hospitals and Nursing Homes Applicable to the COVID Pandemic Effective August 3
On August 3, 2020, Governor Cuomo approved legislation passed by the Assembly and Senate on July 23rd amending civil and criminal immunity protections extended to physicians, hospitals and nursing homes as part of NY Public Health Law Article 30-D last April 2020. PHL Article 30-D extends immunity for healthcare providers during public health emergencies such as the COVID pandemic (declared emergency by Governor Cuomo on March 7, 2020).
While the original law that extended immunity protections applied to all patients in NY during the duration of the state public health emergency, the revision passed on August 3rd restricts immunity protections to physicians, hospitals and nursing homes for treating patients with COVID or suspected of having COVID.
