The Illinois Supreme Court issued an important decision last week holding that certain facilities and entities that have automated external defibrillators (AEDs) on site can be held liable for the willful and wanton failure to use the device in accordance with the Physical Fitness Facility Medical Emergency Preparedness Act (Facility Preparedness Act) and the Automated External Defibrillator Act (AED Act). Jane May of OKGC has prepared a memo regarding the decision for ICRMT members. Please contact your risk management consultant with any questions.
