While our community has been immunizing from COVID-19, we have been monitoring the COVID-19 immunity law. Retroactive to March 9, 2020, the law immunizes health care professionals and facilities for medical treatment claims related to COVID-19.

The New Jersey Supreme Court recently decided the case of Brugaletta v. Garcia in favor of patient safety in hospitals, concluding once again that a patient cannot obtain a hospital’s internal self-review that is done to comply with the Patient Safety Act. Brugaletta follows the law. This decision also benefits both New Jersey hospitals and patients by encouraging hospital self-improvements in a non-punitive environment. It should be applauded by all.
