Good Samaritan Law: Physician Assistant
A physician assistant who, in good faith, voluntarily, and without compensation, provides emergency care or assistance at the scene of an emergency or accident will not be held legally responsible for acting or failing to act. They can be held legally responsible if acting with extreme carelessness or intent to cause harm. Generally, Good Samaritan laws only offer protection for those individuals who provide care during spontaneous emergencies unrelated to volunteer deployment.
