In daily practice, often specialists are consulted by doctors on duty for emergency cases, and most often these specialists only give per-phone instructions without actually coming and examining the patient. If then the patient suffered disabilities or even death, does the specialist commit sure ethical and criminal malpractice? This paper will discuss the ethics of specialists in emergencies, particularly as part of overall management of Emergency Department and hospital, in terms of Indonesian Medical Code of Ethics and related regulations. The situations and categories of emergency responses should be thoroughly considered, and good cooperation between specialists and doctors on duty is necessary to ensure patient safety
