Hospital Discharge Transportation
Hospital Discharge Transportation From Flying Angels
A trip to the hospital can easily become a stressful, anxious experience. While patients and family members focus on medical treatment and the patient’s health, they may not have given much thought to hospital discharge planning. That’s where a non-emergency medical transport (NEMT) company such as Flying Angels can help hospital patients and their families.
As part of its NEMT services, Flying Angels provides transportation to people when they are discharged from the hospital.
Using Medical Transport Services When Discharged
Hospital discharge transportation can become part of a discharge plan patients create when they are in the hospital, working with hospital personnel and family. Hospitals typically have a team that work on discharging patients. Patients should take the same approach, working with others to develop a plan for the safest and best way to leave the hospital.
Flying Angels provides an experienced nurse to travel with a patient upon discharge. They ensure that the patient has all the necessary medication and equipment (such a wheelchair) needed to safely travel. Flying Angels coordinates hospital discharge transportation for transferring patients from their homes or to another care facility.
The Advantages of Hospital Discharge Transportation
A trip to the hospital can quickly become overwhelming. Working with Flying Angels for hospital discharge transportation eliminates one area of concern.
Flying Angels nurses have experience in trauma care. They have the education and experience needed to manage medical situations if they arise during transport.
Flying Angels nurses have experience dealing with patients who have dementia, diabetes, mobility challenges, wheelchairs, ventilators and other equipment, as well as stroke and heart attack patients and those with broken bones.
Peace of Mind
By working with medical professionals during transportation after discharge, patients and their families have the peace of mind knowing that an experienced professional is with them every step of the way from the hospital to their destination.
If the trip home from the hospital requires a flight, Flying Angels will make all the travel arrangements and work with airlines and airports for any special arrangements that patients need.
