Hoffman, S. (2006). Responders’ Responsibility: Liability and Immunity in Public Health Emergencies. Case Western Reserve University School of Law, Scholarly Commons.
The author reviews laws related to liability and immunity and provides a proposal to address gaps in the legislation. Specifically, she advocates for paid health care professionals who must care for patients during disasters as part of their jobs to be afforded the same protections extended to volunteers.
