Indiana AED Law

The State of Indiana AED Law has been established to protect individuals and organizations that own AEDs from liability.  The Indiana AED Law states the following:

"Sec. 4. A person or entity acquiring a defibrillator shall do the following:

(1) Ensure that expected defibrillator users successfully complete an American Heart Association automated external defibrillator course or the equivalent and an American Heart Association cardiopulmonary resuscitation course or the equivalent, taught by a national or state approved instructor. The user of a defibrillator shall possess demonstrated proficiency in defibrillation and cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

(2) Ensure that the defibrillator is maintained and tested according to the manufacturer's operational guidelines.

(3) Enlist medical direction by a licensed physician in the use of the defibrillator and cardiopulmonary resuscitation."

The owner of the AED must provide CPR and AED use training to individuals most likely to use the AED during an emergency.  The AED must be properly maintained according to the manufacture's guidelines to ensure that the AED is fully functional at all times.  The AED Program requires medical direction.  A physician will oversee the AED program to ensure that the organization is compliant with the law.

Indiana Health Club AED Law - Senate Bill 134 (SB 134)

The State of Indiana has enacted an AED law that requires health clubs to provide an AED on site for use during an emergency.  The Indiana Health Club AED Law states the following:

"Sec. 5. An owner or operator of a health club shall do the following:

(1) Ensure that a defibrillator is located on the health club premises and is easily accessible to the health club staff, members, and guests.

(2) Employ at least one (1) individual who: (A) has satisfactorily completed a course approved by the American Red Cross or the American Heart Association; and (B) is currently certified; in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and defibrillator use.

(3) Reasonably ensure that at least one (1) individual described under subdivision (2) is on the health club premises when staff is present at the health club during the health club's business hours.

(4) A health club that is not staffed must have the following on the premises: (A) A telephone for 911 telephone call access. (B) A sign in plain view containing an advisory warning that indicates that members of the unstaffed health spa should be aware that working out alone may pose risks to the health spa member's health and safety. (C) A sign in plain view providing instruction in the use of the automated external defibrillator and in cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

(5) Ensure compliance with the requirements set forth in IC 16-31-6.5.

(6) Post a sign at each entrance to the health club that indicates the location of each defibrillator."

The State of Indiana requires a health club to have an AED on the premises so that staff and patrons can access the AED.  At least one staff memeber must be trained in CPR and AED use and the trained staff member in on the premises during business hours.  The Health Club must post signage about the AED being present and have a phone available to contact 9-1-1 if need be.
