EMTALA Update 2021, August 11
Wednesday, August 11, 2021
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
The EMTALA manual was updated in 2019. There were seven recent documents or survey memos that have promulgated by CMS related to EMTALA. Although the OIG regulations are not contained in the CMS EMTALA CoP manual, it is important for all hospitals to be aware of those regulations.
EMTALA should now be on the radar screen for every hospital. There have been a recent increased number of deficiencies and increased CMS and OIG activity, and it is important that hospitals are prepared should a CMS surveyor arrive at your hospital today to investigate an EMTALA complaint.

- Describe that the hospital must maintain a central log.
