This advanced EMTALA training will allow your facility to fully comply with EMTALA. Emphasis is placed on key regulatory hot-points (seen in audits) using real-world examples.

The Medicare regulations received a major update recently.

Penalties for non-compliance are now over $110,000 per violation with possible loss of Medicare certification.  And one complaint can produce multiple violations for each affected patient!  Protect yourself and your institution.  Sign up for this EMTALA training course today! Emphasis is placed on key regulatory changes using real-world examples.

CMS requires hospitals to periodically educate all ED staff on their duties related to the screening, stabilization and transfer of ED patients:

“…all persons working in emergency departments should be periodically trained and reminded of the hospital’s EMTALA obligations and hospital policies and procedures designed to ensure that such obligations are met.”
