EMTALA, Ambulance Diversion & Wall Time: What EMS Needs to Know-Doug Wolfberg
EMTALA is the federal law that prohibits ""patient dumping"" and obligates hospitals to provide screening examinations of emergency patients. EMS providers are put in difficult situations every day, in potential violation of EMTALA, with prolonged patient offload times, hospitals declaring ""diversionary"" status and refusing to accept incoming ambulance patients, using ambulances improperly for certain interfacility transfers, and more. This eye-opening session will arm EMS providers with the facts they need to properly navigate these difficult issues.
