Julie will specifically address how an individual’s location affects a hospital’s EMTALA duties, and will cover topics including:

  • What is considered to be “hospital property” for purposes of EMTALA;
  • How is EMTALA triggered when a patient presents elsewhere on hospital property;
  • How does provider-based status affect EMTALA obligations; and
  • When does EMTALA apply to a patient who has been referred to an Emergency Department or other hospital department for a test?
