Sudden Cardiac Arrest Law (“Lindsay’s Law”) Signature Page
On March 14, 2017, Lindsay’s Law became effective in Ohio. This new law addresses Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in youth athletes. SCA is the leading cause of death in student athletes 19 years of age or younger. SCA occurs when the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating. This cuts off blood flow to the brain and other vital organs. SCA is fatal if not treated immediately.
The new law applies to youth sports organizations, which is defined as any public or nonpublic entity that organizes an athletic activity in which the athletes are not more than 19 years old and are required to pay a fee to participate in the athletic activity or whose cost to participate is sponsored by a business or nonprofit organization. The law applies to youth athletes who wish to practice for or compete in athletic activities organized by a youth sports organization.
Before a youth athlete in an athletic activity, the athlete must submit to the youth sports organization a form signed by the athlete and the parent, guardian, or other person having care or charge of the athlete stating that they have received and reviewed a copy of the guidelines regarding sudden cardiac arrest. A completed form must be submitted each year for each athletic activity in which the student or athlete participates.
Both the form and guidelines to provide to the athlete and parent are available for download at http://www.odh.ohio.gov/landing/Lindsays-Law.aspx.
Coaches also have the following specific responsibilities under the law:
The health care professionals who may evaluate and clear youth athletes are a physician (MD or DO), a certified nurse practitioner, a clinical nurse specialist, or certified nurse midwife.
The youth sports organization must establish a penalty for any coach that fails to comply with the above requirements.
As in the concussion law, the law provides that a youth sports organization or official, employee, or volunteer of the organization, including a coach, generally is not liable in damages in a civil action for injury, death, or loss to person or property allegedly arising from providing services or performing duties required by the bill. The immunity from liability does not apply if the act or omission constitutes willful or wanton misconduct.
