Care in the time of Covid
As we navigate through this unpracedented time in history, people express varied levels of comfort and concern, so I have created the list below for transparency to empower your own sense of comfort and decision making to choose or to choose not to receive care here. This practice does all the usual safety and clean features you would expect from an acupuncture clinic, included freshly washed sheets in hypoallergenic detergent and regular hand washing, and other covid safety measures like a medical grade air purifier.
However, the world is experiencing a pandemic, so I offer you the below to empower your decisions, yet also need to limit my liability by giving the below techniqcal lawyer statement: coming to this practice and to this practitioner does include an assumption of risk, that you knowlingly and freely assume all such risks, and do hereby and forever discharge Kirsch Method and Matthew Kirsch from any claim whatsoever from coming to this establishment.
ASSUMPTION OF RISKS. I understand that while Service Provider has undertaken reasonable steps to lessen the risk of
transmission of COVID-19 in connection with the Services, Service Provider is not responsible in any manner for any risks related
to COVID-19 in connection with the Services. I understand that the World Health Organization has classified the COVID-19
outbreak as a pandemic. I further understand that COVID-19 is a highly contagious and dangerous disease, and that contact with
the virus that causes COVID-19 may result in significant personal injury or death. I am fully aware that participation in the Services
(including any related travel) carries with it certain inherent risks related to COVID-19 transmission (“Inherent Risks”) that cannot be
eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid such risks. Inherent Risks may include, but are not limited to, (1) the risk of coming
into close contact with individuals or objects that may be carrying COVID-19; (2) the risk of transmitting or contracting COVID-19,
directly or indirectly, to or from other individuals; and (3) injuries and complications ranging in severity from minor to catastrophic,
including death, resulting directly or indirectly from COVID-19 or the treatment thereof. Further, I understand that the risks of
COVID-19 are not fully understood, and that contact with, or transmission of, COVID-19 may result in risks including but not limited
to loss, personal injury, sickness, death, damage, and expense, the exact nature of which are not currently ascertainable, and all of
which are to be considered Inherent Risks. I hereby voluntarily accept and assume all risk of loss, personal injury, sickness, death,
damage, and expense arising from such Inherent Risks. Furthermore, I represent and warrant that I do not suffer from any medical
condition or disease that might in any way hinder or prevent me from receiving the Services, including, to my knowledge, COVID-19.
This COVID-19 Assumption of Risk, Release, and Waiver of Liability Agreement (“Agreement”) shall be binding on my heirs, executors,
administrators, successors, and assigns. I expressly agree that this Agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted
by applicable laws, and that if any portion of this Agreement is found to be void or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall
remain in full force and effect. This Agreement contains the entire understanding of the parties relating to the subject matter, and
shall not be altered, modified, amended, waived or supplemented in any manner whatsoever except by a written agreement signed
by both parties hereto or their duly authorized representatives.
