When stakes are high, strategies must be strong. Understand the scope, requirements, and compliance issues of EMTALA.
The Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) applies to all hospitals with emergency departments that participate in Medicare. Although the law is deceptively simple at a high level - it requires patients seeking emergency medical treatment to be appropriately screened and stabilized if an emergency medical condition exists - EMTALA is complicated in practice.
Furthermore, the stakes are high, not only are EMTALA issues inherently those involving emergency medical conditions (i.e., life and death situations), but EMTALA has proven to be fertile ground for regulatory enforcement actions and civil lawsuits. This topic will identify the key requirements of EMTALA and will identify strategies to ensure compliance.
