Question: I know EMTALA signs are to be placed in registration areas, EDs, and public entrances. Right now we have signs in each of our four ED rooms, in the front hospital entrance, and the registration area. But I need to know if I should hang a sign in our back entrance leading to the ED. This entrance is not considered a public entrance, so do I need to put a sign there?
