Category: Education

The Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) is a frequently cited deficiency for hospitals. This program will cover the EMTALA chapter in the State Operations manual, including the responsibilities of on-call physicians, the various documentation requirements for staff and the hospital regarding patient care at admission, and all transfer requirements.

Part 1 will address the history of EMTALA, including important cases that led to the EMTALA legislation, the role of the Office of Inspector General (OIG) and the Office for Civil Rights (OCR), and the basic requirements of a hospital that accepts MEdicare and Medicaid payments.

Part 2 will address on-call physician responsibilities and patient care requirements, such as stabilization and patient transfers.
