Does anyone know what the regulations are concerning transfers from one
institution to another. In particular, can an ED send a patient to another ED
for further evaluation (for pediatric expertise) and can an inpatient be
transfered to another ED for eventual admission (the ED evaluation would be
used to determine if the child needs an ICU or general floor)? These
situations do not seem to be effected by COBRA ... or are they?
