Product Description

Know What Your EMTALA Sign Must Include—and Where to Post It


Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) non-compliance is not cheap. Your hospital can face penalties of $100,000 per violation—and deficiencies can add up quickly. In fact, EMTALA deficiencies are at the top of the list of hospital compliance shortcomings.

Don’t fall for common pitfalls. Instead, get sound guidance on how to align your hospital policies with federal EMTALA rules—from hospital compliance expert Sue Dill Calloway. In this training session, Calloway provides an in-depth understanding of the EMTALA requirements for maintaining a central log, proper EMTALA signage, and a complete list of the on-call physicians who evaluate emergency department patients at your hospital.

Calloway will also decode EMTALA-related payment issues and instruct you on how to handle sticky patient situations, such as when someone signs out against medical advice. Plus, she’ll explain how to design a reasonable registration process and to differentiate between inpatients and observation patients.

After attending, you’ll know how to address even the most often-overlooked EMTALA requirements and be sure your hospital stands up to surveyors’ scrutiny.
