HB2265 S ED AM #1
The Committee on Education moved to amend the bill on page four, section nine, lines thirty-nine through forty-seven, by striking out all of paragraph (G) and inserting in lieu thereof a new paragraph, designated paragraph (G), to read as follows:
(G) By no later than August 1, 2014, protocols for responding to sports injuries that occur on school property after normal school hours during school sponsored sports events, including practices. The sports injury protocols shall include directives for personnel or equipment which should be available, if needed, on sports fields or in school buildings for both girls and boys teams as well as training needed for school or volunteer personnel.
A licensed health care professional who renders services of a medical nature to students under an agreement with a county board of education that defines the scope of his or her duties as such and for which no remuneration is demanded or received is not liable for any civil damages as a result of rendering such services, or as a result of any act or failure to act in providing or arranging further medical treatment, in accordance with acceptable standards of care, to an extent greater than the applicable limits of the professional liability insurance provided by the state Board of Risk and Insurance Management in effect at the time. Nothing in this subdivision nullifies the immunity from civil liability as granted pursuant to section fifteen, article seven, chapter fifty-five of this code or federal law except to the extent to which the actions are covered within the applicable limits of the professional liability insurance provided by the state Board of Risk and Insurance Management pursuant to this section and in effect at the time.
