In Healthcare Risk Management, health care partner and co-chair Deborah Gersh discussed hospital emergency department legal issues that have stemmed from the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

Deborah notes that the Emergency Medical Treatment & Labor Act may be used as a shield in some circumstances in which a woman is provided care that could, at least under some interpretations, violate a state’s laws restricting abortion access.
