EMTALA Essentials    EMTALA Seminar - for ER Nurses, Emergency Department Physicians, Medical Staff and Board of Directors

EMTALA Essentials  The Latest Regulations and What They Mean for Your Hospital (for ED staff, Medical Staff, Board of Directors, 1-2 hours):


EMTALA can impact the care of every patient in the Emergency Department, so it is essential that all staff be familiar with its many provisions.


New rules went into effect November 10, 2003 clarifying several issues, including the new EMTALA on-call regulations.


Our EMTALA Essentials seminar covers topics such as:

  •  "Dedicated Emergency Departments" under EMTALA

  •  Medical Screening Exams

  •  Emergency Medical Conditions

  •  Prior Authorization

  •  Medical Staff On-Call Responsibilities

  •  Stabilization for Transfer and Discharge

  •  Referral and Specialty Hospitals 

  •  Transfer Requirements (Medical and Legal)

  •  Whistleblower protection regulations

  •  Enforcement Issues

With civil monetary penalties of up to $50,000 per violation and potential Medicare termination, EMTALA is an issue that no hospital can ignore.
