A major crisis or national disaster can be a unifying moment for a community or nation, bringing physicians and other health professionals together to volunteer their services and expertise in a critical time of need. However, a consistent floor for liability protection during a federally declared disaster period does not currently exist, putting volunteers at risk of civil liability. In an effort to establish this much needed floor of protections, Reps. Cliff Stearns (R-FL) and Jim Matheson (D-UT) have introduced the "Good Samaritan Health Professionals Act." This legislation would contribute to a more balanced medical liability system, thus improving patient access to physician services, especially in times of emergency, while reducing the costs of care provided.
