EMTALA - Ley para el Tratamiento de las Urgencias Médicas y los Partos Activos (Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act)
EMTALA es una ley federal que se aprobó en 1986 con el fin de suspender la práctica usada por los hospitales de “echar” a aquellos pacientes sin recursos económicos ni seguro médico al negarles tratamiento en las salas de urgencias o al trasladarlos a otros centros médicos. EMTALA también se conoce como la ley que impide que el hospital se deshaga del paciente.
