Avoid The Pain of EMTALA Violations
Develop greater ED teamwork to ensure EMTALA compliance
Champion policies and procedures that can help your facility avoid costly EMTALA violation penalties.
It takes a team effort to avoid costly Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) violations. In this course, QHR experts show you how to implement policies and procedures to help your ED focus their efforts on EMTALA compliance. The front line, including registration personnel and clinicians, need training on how to properly perform transfers – and your ED needs a well-defined hospital-to-hospital transfer policy. QHR instructors will also show you how to effectively audit your EMTALA log. Greater staff-wide communication and education can help you avoid the pain of EMTALA violations.
