Ethics, Law, and the Good Samaritan

If you are witness to a medical emergency, should you offer assistance?
To prepare for this Discussion, research the Good Samaritan Law for the state of Maryland. Find another jurisdiction with a different Good Samaritan Law. Consider how the two are divergent.

• What are the fundamental elements of the Good Samaritan Laws for the two jurisdictions you researched?

• How do they differ from one another? Be specific and provide examples?
