CPR bill passes in two committees
Last Updated: 226 days ago
Protecting the liability of workers who perform CPR while on the job. That's the bill area Assemblyman Rudy Salas has passed through two committees.
After a woman died at Glenwood Gardens Senior Living in March, many people in our community and the country were left wondering why a company would prevent employees from offering CPR.
Legal advocates spoke about the legal repercussions that face employers who attempt to offer medical aid.
Salas' bill, AB 633 would prevent a company from implementing a policy preventing employee from offering CRP.
Salas said on Wednesday that AB 633 would allow employees to "do the right thing."
AB633 now goes to the Assembly Judiciary Committee for approval.
