It comes as an alarming surprise that most of us are unaware of non-emergency medical transportation.
For most of us, an ambulance is used mostly for emergency purposes. Although it is true that there are ambulances that cater to emergency medical transportation, there are other types of ambulances that are used for non-emergency transportation purposes.
Where does non-emergency transportation come in handy?
The non-emergency ambulances are used when there is no immediate danger to the life of the person being transported from the house to the hospital or interfacility transport.
The patient still needs medical attention but may not be in danger for life in cases that involve
Transportation of patients who are bedridden for regular checkups.
Transportation of elderly patients to the hospital.
Transportation of patients from the airport to the medical facilities.
Transportation of specially-abled patients to medical checkups.
Patients who have undergone surgery and medical procedures in one hospital and need a test to be conducted in another lab.
Transportation of premature babies in neonatal ambulances.
Transportation of patients who need access to medical facilities from either far off locations, or from nearby locations but have a problem in transporting the patient to the medical facilities is termed broadly as non-emergency medical transportation.
