POMA Requests Liability Immunity Action from Governor Wolf

POMA penned a letter to Governor Wolf this week asking him to declare an Executive Order that would provide immunity for Osteopathic physicians when providing care under the COVID-19 emergency declaration. These are some of the worst circumstances for an Osteopathic physician treating patients on the front line of this epidemic. Working in a pandemic environment can create limited patient knowledge and limited resource situations for Osteopathic physicians making medical diagnoses and treating patients as efficiently as possible. POMA recognizes this and asked Governor Wolf to follow similar declarations by other Governors, including the border state of New York.

If you have a few moments, please answer POMA’s call to action and send a message to Governor Wolf that Osteopathic physicians and other healthcare workers need liability immunity until this crisis has passed.
