Although the thought of being transported in a large RV Motorhome vehicle with a built in restroom
Sounds ideal. There are many considerations that should be made especially considering safety.
Did you know that RVs are not DOT approved for medical transportation?
RV Motorhomes are basically stick homes built on top of a truck chassis. An accident in one could cause injuries and death to many.
RVs or Class A motorhomes are not subjected to the same extensive crash worthiness safety requirements as automobiles.
“The typically relatively small Class A motor home builder will then essentially build a stick-built home on top of that truck chassis. Unlike the extensive crash worthiness safety requirements for automobiles, the RV manufacturers may have little or no legal crashworthiness standards which apply to their work.”
ACC Medlink™ offers long distance medical vans, which are fully equipped to meet your needs and ensure the most comfortable ride. Whether the patient can sit up or is restricted to a bed, our staff will make the necessary accommodations. We can even accommodate several family members and pets.
Our Mercedes Sprinter transporters are the only DOT vehicles in the entire industry approved for this type of transport.
Any and all entities conducting interstate passenger transportation must be registered as a Federal Motor Carrier.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
