In the lead article attorney Miles Zaremski argues that ambiguities in good samaritan statutes have made them ineffective, and suggests that they be appropriately amended and clarified. This is one possible approach. However, after almost two decades of experimenting with this type of immunity legislation, an experiment which Zaremski seems to indicate has failed, it is worth considering at least two other alternatives: (I) repeal all good samaritan statutes; or (2) amend them to require health care professionals to stop and render emergency aid (the stated goal of good samaritan statutes).
