Covid-19 compliant training

Due to the Covid-19 crisis, safety measures have been implemented by the CDC and other governing bodies, until an unknown future date. This includes 1 to 1 ratio practice with gloves, hand sanitizer and masks, which means no face to face practice with a training partner in close proximity (as is common). No mouth to mouth practice (if typically required for the specific course). Students are spaced out at a minimum of 6 feet from other students. Zoom (distance learning) training may be offered, depending on course type and requirements.

Zoom-based training

Some courses can be provided through the Zoom training option. Courses that do not require written test compliance. The equipment that is needed for the training (ie: Manikins, Epi-Pen trainers) are dropped off in advance to the student. The training is provided with the instructor supervising and offering encouragement and correction over the Zoom portal. This can be offered for individuals, we well as groups.

Good Samaritan Laws

When an emergency happens, a Good Samaritan is a person who voluntarily tries to help, without expectation or compensation. Good Samaritan Laws are intended to protect those who offer assistance of any type from being held liable if their actions end up causing unintended harm, or the outcome is poor.

Without laws to protect people trying to help when a sudden emergency occurs, many would walk away, for fear of being sued (or worse). In many emergencies, a delay can mean the difference between life and death. Good Samaritan Laws are intended to encourage people to help each other in emergency situations, before EMS arrives, but also to act responsibly whenever doing so.

Good Samaritan Law in California

In the state of California, the Good Samaritan Law falls under California Health and Safety Code Section 1799.102. This law states that when a person renders emergency care and acts in good faith without expecting compensation, they can’t be held liable for their acts or omissions.

The exception would be if their acts demonstrate gross negligence or wanton misconduct. For example, the Good Samaritan could be found negligent if they CAUSED the accident/emergency in the first place, or if, during help, they INTENDED to make the situation worse, or cause unnecessary harm.

Before 2011, this law only protected individuals who were required to help when off-duty (nurses, law enforcement, EMS). The law has since been amended to protect people ANYONE who offers voluntary help of any kind. This includes non-medical scenarios such as clearing traffic, staying beside someone to let them know they are not alone, helping someone out of a vehicle or calling 911. It protects those who do CPR and those who own and use AEDs. It also protects the worker who assists a coworker while on-duty.

Good Samaritans are incredibly important. Without them, the outcome could be extremely poor. They are the first to provide help and call 911. There are Good Samaritan laws in all 50 states, as well as on international waters (cruise ships) and in the air (while on planes).
