    In 1986, Congress passed the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA). This was done to combat the perceived problem of "patient dumping," where hospital emergency rooms were refusing to treat patients that did not have health insurance. This book covers everything you need to know about EMTALA, from its history and regulatory framework to the requirements it places on hospitals to this day. This includes larger considerations like what constitutes a legitimate emergency medical condition, but also smaller (but still important) ones like signage and proper record keeping. The book also looks at other considerations, like dealing with psychiatric patients, malpractice, and disaster response. What Is…EMTALA? is a must for any attorney working in the field of patient's rights.
