As a nurse working in a busy emergency room I can’t begin to tell you how important medevac services can be.
In case you aren’t aware – a company such as aerocare.com, provides air ambulance services, and air evacuation medical flight services. It’s a valuable service, as sometimes an air ambulance is the only way to rescue someone from a remote area, or pick up a patient from a multi-vehicle accident on a highway. They can get to a patient quickly and get them to a hospital faster than a ground ambulance in many cases.
A number of the nurses that I’ve worked with in the past have worked for air ambulance services. Perhaps even Aerocare. I’ve heard stories of stressful trips bringing a patient back home from one country to another. Often the patients my fellow nurses have cared for are critically ill and these patients sometimes become even sicker as they travel to a hospital in their own country or via air to a trauma hospital.
The nurses and other medical staff that work for Aerocare have to be sharp and on the ball. Certainly if I ever needed the services of Aerocare I’d feel secure in knowing how professional the medical staff would be, just because of my own experience working in the ER with some of the best nurses I’ve ever worked with who’ve done medivac work in the past.
Why am I talking about Aerocare? Well, it’s March break. People often take vacations at this time of year and sometimes they get sick while they are away from home. It’s always good to know about an air ambulance service that could bring your sick father or mother home if they became critically ill while vacationing in another country.
If you needed the services of Aerocare you’d appreciate the fact that competent medical staff would accompany your loved on either on a regular flight home, or via special air transport. Medical staff would monitor your loved one’s condition all the way home and care for them as needed to make sure that they made it safely back to a hospital in their home Country.
Aerocare offers 24 hour worldwide service, with a flight nurse and staff medic on each mission. Considering that they provide their service worldwide they have extensive domestic and international experience. Their medical equipment is state of the art.
As I alluded to earlier, they also provide commercial airline medical escort services.
The pricing for the services they provide is reasonable as well.
I hope that people don’t end up needing the services of an air ambulance service anytime soon, but it’s good to know about service such as this isn’t it?
