EMTALA

We assist clients with a broad range of Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) issues, including definitions of “emergency medical conditions”, the creation of appropriate staffing and on-call standards, examination and stabilization requirements, and the preparation of appropriate documentation. We deal with complaints and investigations and understand that some problems require immediate attention of our lawyers to assure appropriate patient screening and care. We have in depth experience assisting hospitals in responding to statements of deficiencies and preparing corrective action plans to protect the facility from further investigation and prosecution. In situations where a hospital is sanctioned, we have experience in handling the appeal before the OIG. We have detailed experience in preparing EMTALA policies for hospitals and assisting in the necessary training of hospital's medical staff on the complexities of EMTALA.
