Elective surgeries and protections for healthcare workers
The Governor’s ban on elective surgeries and procedures expires this Friday, May 1. VCNP was proud to join the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association and other professional healthcare groups in urging the Governor to honor this date. In addition, we are looking for ways to partner with these groups to educate the public about the safety precautions Virginia’s healthcare workers are following as they provide important preventative and urgent care to patients.
VCNP also joined with other groups to advocate for liability protections for Virginia’s healthcare workers. On April 28, Governor Northam signed Executive Order 60, which reinforces certain existing statutory liability protections in cases of emergency. The order does not prevent liability in cases of gross negligence or willful misconduct.
