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.

White House Releases State Model Law to Help Make Access to Naloxone Consistent Across the Country | ONDCP | The White House

In an effort to save lives, states have implemented laws to make it easier for first responders and the general public to obtain naloxone. Additionally, to encourage people to assist an individual who is or may be suffering an overdose, the majority of states also enacted laws which protect laypeople who administer naloxone, in good faith, in an emergency from civil and/or criminal liability 1. As of August 2020, all 50 states and the District of Columbia have some form of a naloxone access law. The laws vary significantly by state. The Legislative Analysis and Public Policy Association (LAPPA) has undertaken an extensive research project to determine the current status of naloxone access laws throughout the United States, including the District of Columbia and all U.S. territories.

Good Samaritan Law in Texas

Texas protects its citizens through The Texas Good Samaritan Act.

The Act states: “a person who in good faith administers emergency care at the scene of an emergency or in a hospital is not liable in civil damages for an act performed during the emergency unless the act is willfully or wantonly negligent.”
This means is that if a person stops and renders aid in an emergency voluntarily (when there is no legal duty to do so), this “Good Samaritan” can’t be sued unless he or she was flagrantly negligent.
The Act offers significant protection to aid injured individuals in emergency, thereby encouraging citizens to attempt to care and protect one another from further injury by allowing them to make reasonable decisions in the moment on behalf of a victim (who may not be conscious, etc).

There are certain individuals the Act does not protect.
  1. Anyone who expects remuneration;
  2. Anyone who was at the scene of an emergency because they were soliciting business or a type of service;
  3. Anyone who regularly administers care professionally, such as individuals working in a hospital or ER; or
  4. An admitting or treating physician associated by the admitting physician of a patient bringing in a health-care liability claim.

Thereby, individuals who expect to be paid, and some other medical professionals are not protected by the Act.
