Cal Bus & Prof Code 2861.5
Good Samaritan Law: Vocational Nurse
A licensed vocational nurse who, in good faith, provides emergency care at the scene of an emergency which occurs outside the nurse's employment will not be held legally responsible for acting or failing to act. They can be held legally responsible if acting with extreme carelessness. Generally, Good Samaritan laws only offer protection for those individuals who provide care during spontaneous emergencies unrelated to volunteer deployment.
Liability for emergency care
A person licensed under this chapter who in good faith renders emergency care at the scene of an emergency which occurs outside both the place and the course of his employment shall not be liable for any civil damages as the result of acts or omissions in rendering the emergency care. This section shall not be construed to grant immunity from civil damage to any person whose conduct in rendering emergency care is grossly negligent.
