ACEP Policy on Visitation and Custody

Personal Well-Being and Resilience

Emergency physicians, along with emergency nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and others, are on the front line in this pandemic, but they are also human beings who need and deserve the comfort of their families when they are off duty.

Emergency physicians are trained in proper precautions to significantly reduce the risk to themselves as well as their families. ACEP requests that the pandemic and the work that our colleagues are doing not be a factor in custody or visitation disputes.
