Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Good Samaritan Act. Provides that any person who is certified in first aid or has completed a course of instruction in first aid, who in good faith provides emergency care without fee to any person shall not, as a result of his or her acts or omissions, except willful and wanton misconduct on the part of the person, in providing the care, be liable to a person to whom such care is provided for civil damages. Effective July 1, 2006.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the original bill with the following changes. Provides that the exemption for first aid providers shall apply to a person who is currently certified in first aid by the American Red Cross or the American Heart Association (instead of is certified in first aid or has completed a course of instruction in first aid). Removes the requirement that the first aid be provided as emergency care and extends the immunity to any first aid performed by a first aid provider without fee, except for willful and wanton misconduct. Provides that the immunity does not apply to any health care facility or to any practitioner providing services in a hospital or health care facility. Effective July 1, 2006.
