EMTALA question.

  1. I had thought that I once heard that it was an EMTALA violation for a nurse to ask a patient about insurance coverage. Can anyone tell me if they have heard this and if so, were can I find it in writing? THANKS!!

    its only a violation if you ask the patient for it before being treated.

    Isn't that info included on the face sheet or somewhere in the demographics?
