Emergency Physician Protections Included in Liability Reform Bill Passed by House

From ACEP News:

An ACEP-supported amendment that extends Federal tort protections to emergency physicians was included in a comprehensive medical liability reform bill approved March 22 by the U.S. House of Representatives.

Representatives Charlie Dent (R-Pa.) and Pete Sessions (R-Tex.) offered the amendment to H.R. 5 that provides limited liability protections to (emergency and on-call) physicians who perform the services mandated by the federal EMTALA law – ACEP’s top legislative priority in the 112th Congress.
