Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Good Samaritan Act. Provides that the immunity extended to disaster relief volunteers extends to any health practitioner, as that term is defined in the Uniform Emergency Volunteer Health Practitioners Act. Provides that the immunity is extended to a class of specified individuals who in good faith and without fee or compensation provide "health services", as that term is defined in the Uniform Emergency Volunteer Health Practitioners Act. Provides that the period of immunity lasts 30 (instead of 10) days following a disaster or catastrophic event or during the time the Governor has declared a disaster pursuant to the Illinois Emergency Management Agency Act. Provides that the immunity applies only to a disaster relief volunteer who provides health services in relief of a disaster, as that term is defined by the Illinois Emergency Management Agency Act (instead of in relief of an earthquake, hurricane, tornado, nuclear attack, terrorist attack, epidemic, or pandemic). Makes other changes. Effective immediately.
