Hello! Has anyone developed or seen a COVID generic liability form for clients to sign upon returning to an office setting? And for subleasers if you rent to colleagues? If yes, where can this form be found? Or how did you obtain it?
Before you answer - I've done a lot of background work on this already - had an extensive conversation with an attorney at CAMFT, and requested one from them, but have not heard back if they will provide it.
I've also had an extensive conversation and email exchange with my liability insurance carrier, CPH, who will not provide one either. I've read the advice from Trust Insurance to their psychologists (a colleague shared this with me).
I've consulted with my own attorney, who says one is needed.
I've seen these forms now come from doctors, dentists and other professionals before a service can now be rendered or you enter into a professional building.
We are not yet in Stage 2 in the Bay Area to return to office work, but we are preparing.
I'm looking FOR a form if one is out there - can be generic - not an opinion if it is needed or not - because based on two attorneys, it actually is needed.
Or, I'm looking for other clinicians to lobby CAMFT and have their legal team provide one to members for the safety of our clients, our subleasers and our practices/own therapist license.
Thanks so much!
