According to a recent memo from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), more than 4,000 hospitals received deficiencies for failure to comply with the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA). And violation penalties have more than doubled.
Would you know what to do if a CMS surveyor walked into your hospital today to investigate an EMTALA complaint? Most hospitals are totally unprepared. Don’t be one of them. Join this six-hour live webinar series presented by hospital compliance guru Sue Dill Calloway to prepare for surveyor scrutiny of EMTALA deficiencies.
Over three training sessions, you’ll gain a thorough understanding of EMTALA requirements as well as common areas of noncompliance. Calloway will address the Beneficiary & Family Centered Care: Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) process. And you’ll walk away with the tools and knowledge you need to ensure that your hospital’s policies, procedures, and training are adequate for EMTALA compliance.
Don’t risk losing Medicare and Medicaid payments—or racking up unnecessary fines. Learn how to avoid top-cited deficiencies (Session 1), maintain a compliant central log and on-call physician protocols (Session 2), and follow guidelines to treat minor, OB, and mental/behavioral health patients (Session 3)—as well as many other real-world hospital compliance strategies.
