One of the most important services an air ambulance company can provide is bedside to bedside service. Bedside to bedside services means your needs are taken care of from your bed in a hospital, hospice or at home to your destination. An air ambulance that provides this service truly understands your needs. Bedside to bedside services means our air ambulance experts do all the work for you.
When you ask for a quote on an air ambulance you should always ask if bedside to bedside services are included. Without that insurance you could be booking an air ambulance and little else. Air ambulance companies like Travel Care that offer the service will take all the steps necessary to transport a patient. The first step for bedside to bedside service we undertake is we arrange for a ground ambulance to pick up a patient and transport them from their bed in a hospital, hospice or at home.
Once our staff arrives with the ambulance at the hospital we meet with nurses and/or doctors of the patient to go over medical reports and make sure proper medication, if any, is needed. We also meet with the patient and family before transporting the patient to the airport.
Patients are then loaded onto the air ambulance. During the flight our medical air ambulance staff is with the patient taking care of any needs until we reach our destination. Once we reach the destination we have a ground ambulance ready to meet the air ambulance and schedule an arrival at the new facility. We then meet with the doctors and/or nurses at the new facility to hand over paperwork and other information.
There’s also situations where an air ambulance patient may not be critical, like in the case of a broken bone or mild stroke, where the discharge information can be given to us over the phone and we simply meet the ambulance at the airport and do the same upon arrival. Each air ambulance patient is evaluated based on their needs. As always our air ambulance staff does whatever is best for the patient and can always work with the patient and family to best understand their needs.
At Travel Care our air ambulance services always include bedside to bedside services. You can relax and let our air ambulance experts take care of your every need so you can focus on receiving the care you need. For more information about our air ambulance services like us on Facebook.
