124. Evaluation and Treatment of Minors. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Evaluation and Treatment of Minors. Many patients under the age of majority present to emergency departments (EDs) without parents or guardians. This may create concern in regard to evaluation of these patients without formal consent to treat. The Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act mandates that all patients presenting to EDs receive a medical screening examination and does not exclude these minors. Standards for who can provide consent for a patient vary from state to state and address (...) important issues such as consent by parent surrogates, as well as adolescent emancipation, reproductive health, mental health, and substance use. This document addresses current federal and state legal implications of providing emergency care to minors, as well as guidance in obtaining consent, maintaining confidentiality, and addressing refusal of care.Copyright © 2017 American College of Emergency Physicians.

Medical transcription is still the primary mechanism for a physician to clearly communicate with other healthcare providers who access the patient record, to advise them on the state of the patient's health and past/current treatment, and to assure continuity of care. More recently, following Federal and State Disability Act changes, a written report (IME) became a requirement for documentation (...) notes that were added in the patient's file for interpretation by the primary physician responsible for the treatment.

EMTALA and Patients With Psychiatric Emergencies: A Review of Relevant Case Law. Emergency department (ED) care for patients with psychiatric complaints has become increasingly challenging given recent nationwide declines in available inpatient psychiatric beds. This creates pressure to manage psychiatric patients in the ED or as outpatients and may place providers and institutions at risk for liability under the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA). We describe the patient (...) screening examination and did not detect an emergency medical condition that required stabilization.Lawsuits involving alleged EMTALA violations in the care of ED patients with psychiatric complaints are uncommon and rarely successful.Copyright © 2014 American College of Emergency Physicians.

134. Case studies at Denver Health: 'patient dumping' in the emergency department despite EMTALA, the law that banned it. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Case studies at Denver Health: 'patient dumping' in the emergency department despite EMTALA, the law that banned it. The Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act was enacted in 1986 to prevent hospitals from turning away patients with emergency medical conditions, often because they were uninsured--a practice commonly known as "patient dumping." Twenty-five years later, Denver Health--a large, urban, safety-net hospital--continues to experience instances in which people with emergency (...) conditions, many of whom are uninsured, end up in the safety-net setting after having been denied care or receiving incomplete care elsewhere. We present five case studies and discuss potential limitations in the oversight and enforcement of the 1986 law. We advocate for a more effective system for reporting and acting on potential violations, as well as clearer standards governing compliance with the law.
