The Emergency Medical Treatment & Labor Act (EMTALA) generally requires Medicare-participating hospitals to provide emergency services to patients regardless of their ability to pay. Violations of EMTALA can be costly, with non-compliant hospitals subject to civil penalties of almost $60,000 to nearly $120,000 per violation, and even lead to the termination of the hospital’s Medicare provider agreement.
Given the complexity of hospital operations and the potential consequences for non-compliance with EMTALA, please join us for a discussion of EMTALA and its application in certain situations, including:
- What EMTALA requires from hospitals, including those with and without emergency departments, sources of guidance and interpretation for EMTALA’s application.
- Conducting the emergency medical screening using qualified medical personnel and ensuring the screening is sufficient to detect an emergency medical condition.
- Limitations on the scope of EMTALA and its requirements, particularly regarding preventative services, non-medical care, medication, and pre-scheduled services.
- The transfer or discharge of patients once they have been stabilized, including transfer to other care facilities—along with the stabilization, physician certification, and logistical considerations in doing so—and discharge of the patient to home. The responsibilities of a transferee hospital receiving a transferred patient will also be discussed.
- A hospital’s use of diversionary status, where limitations on its facilities or personnel do not allow it to accommodate additional patients, and documenting the time, need for, and notice of diversionary status provided to emergency medical services personnel.
- Special cases involving pregnant and psychiatric patients.
This webinar will provide an overview of EMTALA that will benefit both experienced hospital administrators and those new to the role. Staying current on topics like EMTALA is important to compare against current practices, and to avoid civil penalties and other sanctions.
