CALL/TWEET GOVERNOR WOLF - SIGN HB 1737, LIMITED CIVIL IMMUNITY UNDER COVID-19 ORDERS
PA-ACP has been advocating and lobbying the General Assembly and Governor Wolf to give internists and other health care providers limited civil immunity from lawsuits during COVID-19.  The House and Senate have passed HB 1737, which would provide that civil liability protection during the COVID-19 orders for health care practitioners, providers and facilities.
We need you to add your voice to ours.  Please call/write Governor Wolf demanding that he sign this legislation!
The legislation would cover:
Treatment or testing for COVID-19 to patients who have been exposed or that the provider reasonably believes have been exposed;
Acts or omissions caused by shortage of equipment, supplies or personnel as a direct result of demands for testing or treatment of COVID-19 and beyond the reasonable control of the provider;
Patients in excess of the capacity of a department or unit of a covered provider as a direct result of the need to test or treat COVID-19;
Complying with public health directives regarding testing and treatment of COVID-19, and any act that a covered provider believes in good faith complies with a public health directive.

If the Governor signs this bill, it takes effect immediately.
