Product Description

Understand the Finer Points of EMTALA Rules for Behavioral Health


A recent case against a South Carolina hospital yielded the largest Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) settlement in history: $1.2 million. Should you be scared? Most hospitals should—because EMTALA is the most frequent area of hospital noncompliance. And most hospitals are underprepared to meet surveyor’s scrutiny.

Gain the insider guidance you need to untangle the complex federal regulations and upgrade your EMTALA compliance in 2019. Join this information-packed webinar by hospital management guru Sue Dill Calloway to grasp the rules for—and challenges associated with—treating minors, OB patients, and behavioral health patients. For instance, uncover what to do when the babysitter brings a child into the emergency department for a medical screening exam.

After attending this instructive session, you will have the actionable tools and knowledge you need to avoid commonly overlooked EMTALA-related compliance gaps—such as those involving minor child treatment requests, certifications of false labor, born alive law, blood alcohol tests, stabilization, and much more.
