Late last year we presented a webinar, EMTALA Mistakes You Should Never Make, where we highlighted recent EMTALA enforcements and provided guidance on how your organization could create a compliance program that helps safeguard you from similar fines.
At its core, EMTALA was created to ensure hospital emergency rooms screen and stabilize every patient with a medical emergency - regardless of whether that patient has health insurance. Yet, there are a surprisingly large number of hospitals that have been found in violation of the act. In fact, there were over 4,300 EMTALA violations over a ten year period spanning from 2008 to 2018.
Clearly, there has been some confusion on how to avoid EMTALA mistakes. So, if you’re interested in learning more on the topic, we’ve got a special treat for you. By watching this on-demand webinar, we’ll give you a free HCCA CEU.
