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