Providing emergency medical care is stressful. Since the enactment of the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) of 1986, it has become even more challenging.

A federal law requiring hospital emergency departments to medically screen, stabilize or transfer every patient who seeks emergency care, regardless of health insurance status or ability to pay, EMTALA presents ERs with additional liability.

We advise both hospitals and medical staffs on EMTALA issues. We routinely make presentations to and host seminars for medical, nursing, and administrative staffs regarding EMTALA obligations.
