Immunities in the Face of the COVID-19 Human Rights and Public Health Crisis
Earlier this year, the NYSBA Health Law Section convened a Task Force to develop a report to highlight and discuss the unique legal and ethical issues confronted by the health care system in the State of New York presented by the COVID-19 crisis. Issues pertaining to patient care, the business of health care, and regulatory mandates imposed upon providers and health care facilities presented unprecedented challenges during this public health emergency. As a result certain qualified immunities became necessary, not as a means of curtailing investigations and lawsuits, but as a means to balance the unique demands placed upon providers and health care facilities during this human rights and public health crisis.
