De Tarquino v. Jersey City

Statutory Immunity does not extent to Docmentation


Accurate documentation of the Patient Care Report remains one of the most important aspects of EMT's job. While the recent decision in Murray v. Plainfield Rescue made clear that N.J.S.A. 26:2K-29 extends statutory immunity to the EMT Basic for negligence during rendering of care this does not apply to Documentation. While unpublished, De Tarquino v. Jersey City makes it clear that Immunity does not extend to negligent documentation.
