4 Tips When Using Medical Transportation
Every part of our medical transportation services is aimed at your comfort and safety, but there are several things you can do to help make the ride as smooth as possible when using ACC Medlink.
1. Prepare for your ride.
Be sure to take some time before your journey to pack what you’ll need. Forgetting an item at home can be time-consuming or inconvenient during and after the transportation. Consider making a checklist so you don’t have to worry about items when you’re focusing on the most important part of your ride-you! When traveling with our long-distance non-emergency medical transportation service, we ask that you have a two-day supply of medication at pickup as your medical transport team will not have your medication on hand.
A few items that are good to remember to include when packing are:
Cell Phone and Cell Phone Charger.
2. Keep The Drivers and Medical Aware Of All Needs
Before and during your state to state medical transportation be sure to notify the drivers and medical professional of any needs:
Food and Beverages: along the way we do provide quick meals such as subs, salads, soups, or fast food for patients and their family. We also have a snack tray and cooler on board the medical transport ambulance. When the need for food arises simply notify the crew and they will find food close to the route they are on.
Comfort Needs: Blankets, Pillows, Sheets, and even a Electric Blanket are all stocked in the vehicle and for your use at all times throughout the transport.
3. Notify crew ahead of time for any special request.
If the patient or family have any small request please notify the transportation specialist ahead of time to ensure crew has enough time to accommodate your request for your long distance medical transport. If you like a specific kind of movie, drink, or snack.
4. Let the drivers drive.
After you’ve spoken to the driver and settled in, let him or her do their job and get you to your destination. It’s always fine to converse with your driver as you travel the long distance, but remember that their focus is the road and keeping you and your family safe. This will ensure your medical transport is as efficient and comfortable as possible.
