Whether you offer psychiatric care at your hospital or specialize in it, EMTALA and HIPAA requirements are strict. When a patient presents with a behavioral health condition and seeks treatment, there are certain procedures you must follow very closely to ensure you are complying with The Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA). Under EMTALA, hospitals are obligated to conduct a medical screening and psychiatric evaluation, as well as stabilize the patient while awaiting discharge, transfer to a bed within your hospital or transfer to another facility.
With the number of psychiatric patient beds falling drastically, psych patients have nowhere to go but the ED. The reality is that you could face potential civil penalties and monetary loss due to mishandling of psych patients if you are not complying with the rigorous EMTALA requirements.
