To help protect a patient’s health, Able Air Ambulance’s medical team remains beside the patient from the beginning of transport until the end. The flight begins when the medical team arrives at the patient’s bedside. The flight crew speaks with the attending medical staff and assesses the patient’s overall condition prior to transport. Once this is completed, the team stays with the patients in a ground ambulance to the medical flight’s airfield location. During this time, the medical personnel constantly monitor the patient’s condition. Once the flight is completed, the medical team stays with the patients during ground transport to the receiving hospital. Upon arrival at the receiving facility, the team stays with the patient until the patient is settled into his or her room. Finally, the flight team consults with the hospital’s medical team before departing the hospital. All of these steps help ensure the patient receives the best medical care throughout the transportation.
