Connecticut Hospital Settles Case Involving Patient Dumping Allegation

On December 12, 2018, Hartford Hospital (Hartford), Hartford, Connecticut, entered into a $50,000 settlement agreement with OIG. The settlement agreement resolves allegations that Hartford violated the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act when it failed to provide an appropriate medical screening examination to a woman who was 23.5 weeks pregnant when she presented to Hartford's Emergency Department with symptoms of preeclampsia, an emergency medical condition. Senior Counsels Joan Matlack and Srishti Sheffner represented OIG.
