North Dakota

Since March 2017, North Dakota has operated AED donation programs without specific mandates for maintenance, training, medical direction, and program documentation, offering only recommendations. While the Good Samaritan law shields AED participants, it confines protection to activities directly related to AED usage. Other facets of AED programs remain outside this legal safeguard. Notably, North Dakota mandates the presence of AEDs in all schools.

North Dakota Statutes and Regulations

Any person who in good faith and without compensation provides emergency care or emergency treatment by using an automated external defibrillator is immune from civil liability for any personal injury resulting from the emergency care or emergency treatment and for any act or failure to act in providing or arranging further medical treatment if the person providing the emergency care or emergency treatment acted as an ordinary, reasonable, prudent person would act under the same or similar circumstances. This subsection does not apply if a personal injury results from gross negligence or from the willful or wanton misconduct of the person providing the emergency care or emergency treatment. The immunity provision of subsection 2 applies to a licensed physician under subdivision d of subsection 1, the person who provides the training under subdivision a of subsection 1, and the person responsible for the site on which the automated external defibrillation is located. This section does not limit civil liability protection provided by another law.
