State and federal law both considers the “prudent layperson standard” when deciding whether a patient is in a state of emergency from an emergent medical condition. A layperson is a person who has a basic understanding of healthcare and medicine and determines that they are experiencing enough pain from acute symptoms that a visit to the ER is warranted. In other words, an emergent medical condition is something that has recently occurred and not a pre-existing chronic condition.
