Description

The enforcement of the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA) and the policies designed to ensure that hospitals, localities, or states are not “dumping” indigent, mentally ill patients in need of emergency care on other hospitals, localities, or states in violation of the law are examined in this CEU course. Policy suggestions to better protect the rights of the mentally ill are also considered.

Objectives

Once you have completed this course, you will be able to:
1. Discuss what patient dumping refers to.

2. Explain the statutory rights of action created by Congress in drafting EMTALA.

3. Investigate what CMS requires hospitals must do, in addition to providing a medical screening examination, necessary stabilizing treatment, appropriate transfers, and acceptance of transfers under the statute.

4. Examine what medical professionals should do when both physical and mental emergencies exist.

5. Elucidate who may file a civil rights complaint with OCR on behalf of a victim.

6. Identify the federal provisions related to mental health disabilities that the Office for Civil Rights has the power to enforce.
