EMTALA: 911 On Call

On September 9, 2003, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published its final rule clarifying hospital obligations to patients covered under the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Law.

According to EMTALA's requirements patients have the right to receive care if they either enter the emergency department or request examination or treatment. With this program your staff will better understand the ruling and what to do if presented with a case. Topics include:

  • Existing EMTALA guidelines and latest CMS changes
  • Definition of a dedicated emergency department
  • Effects on other hospital departments
  • Mandatory medical screenings to see if emergency care is needed
  • Guidelines when asking about financial status or health insurance
  • Situations in which your facility can transfer an emergency patient
  • Changes for on-call personnel
  • Responsibilities of hospital-owned ambulances
