EMTALA Webinar Series Session III (A 3-Part Series)

EMTALA Webinar Series Session III (A 3-Part Series)

Session III: Physician Involvement with the EMTALA Process 
Medicare-certified hospitals and critical-access hospitals with emergency departments must follow the federal law and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regulations and interpretative guidelines for the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA). This three-part series will focus on problematic areas of EMTALA concepts, adequacy of medical screening and on-call physician issues. Fines have more than doubled since 2015 when CMS implemented the inflationary adjustment retroactive to the implementation of the EMTALA regulations. 

This final session will focus on physician involvement with the EMTALA process including on-call physician rules, when an on-call physician must appear in the emergency department and how to deal with risky patient situations such as leaving against medical advice and leaving without being seen.

Target Audience:
Behavioral Health Staff, CEOs, CMOs, CNOs, Compliance Officers, Emergency Medicine Staff, Legal Counsel, Nursing Staff, Obstetric Staff, Risk Managers and other interested staff
