§ 6547. Emergency    services   rendered   by   physician   assistant.
  Notwithstanding any inconsistent provision of any  general,  special  or
  local law, any physician assistant properly registered in this state who
  voluntarily and without the expectation of monetary compensation renders
  first  aid  or  emergency treatment at the scene of an accident or other
  emergency, outside a hospital, doctor's office or any other place having
  proper and necessary medical equipment, to a person who is  unconscious,
  ill  or injured, shall not be liable for damages for injuries alleged to
  have been sustained by such person or for damages for the death of  such
  person  alleged  to have occurred by reason of an act or omission in the
  rendering of  such  first  aid  or  emergency  treatment  unless  it  is
  established  that  such  injuries were or such death was caused by gross
  negligence on the part of such  physician  assistant.  Nothing  in  this
  section  shall  be  deemed  or construed to relieve a licensed physician
  assistant from liability for damages for injuries or death caused by  an
  act  or  omission  on  the part of a physician assistant while rendering
  professional services in the normal and ordinary course of his practice.
