I am looking for some clarification on some EMTALA guidelines and I can't seem to find where to go with questions. Does anyone know? For example, if a pt presents to L&D in no obvious distress, with c/o painless uc's (or even no uc's) and just wants her cervix checked to see if she is dilating, is it a violation to suggest that she go to her OB's office, without checking her? There seem to be so many "gray areas." I would love it if someone could tell me a website, phone number, address, anything where I could go to get some questions answered!!!!
