Product Description

Prepare to Survive CMS Surveyors’ EMTALA Scrutiny


If your hospital fails to comply with the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA), you could face deficiency citations by surveyors, severe fines and penalties, and even loss of Medicare and Medicaid payments.

Protect your hospital from these pitfalls and upgrade your EMTALA compliance for 2019. Join this session, presented by hospital compliance expert Sue Dill Calloway, to arm your hospital compliance team to address even the most often-overlooked EMTALA requirements. Plus, learn to navigate the Beneficiary & Family Centered Care: Quality Improvement Organization process.

Calloway will offer an in-depth discussion of EMTALA definitions, standards, and requirements. She will explain why EMTALA is the most frequently cited deficiency for hospitals—and how to avoid that fate. She will also walk you through the CMS manual on EMTALA that all hospitals that accept Medicare must follow.
