June 15, 12pm-2pm CST | EMTALA (2-part series) Presenter: Laura A. Dixon, BS, JD, RN, CPHRM
This 2-part webinar will include the regulations and interpretive guidelines. It will include all 12 sections and an expanded section for on-call physicians and the shared and community care plan process.
This webinar series will include discussion of a case that has created an enormous expansion of hospital and practitioner liability under federal law. The case, Moses v. Providence Hospital and Medical Centers, Inc., No. 07-2111 (6th Cir. April 2009), overruled the CMS regulation that EMTALA obligations ends when the hospital admits the patient in good faith. Those states in the 6th Circuit (Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Michigan) must now follow this case as precedent. Sometimes the result may be different if the patient files a lawsuit as opposed to filing a complaint with CMS. This case illustrates the importance of understanding the role that case law has on the outcome of EMTALA litigation. Patients can complain to CMS and request an investigation, or they have the option of going and directly filing a lawsuit.
