WHAT IS NON-EMERGENCY TRANSPORTATION?

Non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) is transportation to and from medical
appointments for people who cannot travel there on their own. It is referred to as non-emergency
transportation because transportation providers bring their clients to their destination and back on
a non-emergency basis.
Emergency transportation, by contrast, involves needing transport to the hospital due to an urgent
medical need in an ambulance. In this case, the ambulance is equipped for this type of
transportation and the paramedics are trained to help someone experiencing a medical emergency
until they can get to a hospital.

Medical non-emergency transportation is not merely about the vehicle used to go somewhere, it is also about why our clients need to go there and what we can do to make it a safe and comfortable experience for them.

WHEN TO GET NON-EMERGENCY MEDICAL TRANSPORTATION

An ambulance picks you up when you call emergency help. Non-emergency medical transportation, on the other hand, comes when you need help in non-emergency situations. In other words, the main difference between them is urgency. NEMT is typically booked beforehand, while an ambulance service is usually unplanned.

Emergency services aim to reach the patient as soon as possible to reduce the risk of further injuries or death. NEMT service doesn’t have a siren that signals other drivers to pull over. The patient’s needs are not immediate, so there’s no need for one.

WHO COULD BENEFIT FROM NON-EMERGENCY MEDICAL?

Those who are undergoing physical therapy, dialysis, or have a medical appointment can get NEMT services to make transport easier for them. Non-emergency medical transportation is also beneficial for those who don’t have free transportation. For instance, you can benefit from this service if your family members can’t drive you to the hospital.

NEMT is also a good option for those who are traveling long distances. Patients with impairments or physical limitations that need a specialized vehicle can benefit from NEMT services as well. These are patients who can’t travel long distances in the usual manner due to their injury or medical condition.

Non-emergency medical transportation eliminates transportation barriers for individuals with serious medical conditions or disabilities and the elderly. They don’t need to miss out on medical care just because they are not suited for the traditional way of traveling. NEMT not only makes travel easy but also reduces the impact of disease to one’s life.

Our NEMT services are ideal for those who need constant medical help or have mobility issues. We have been transporting patients in the northern California Bay Area for years with the help of our medical escorts, ground transportation facility, and a fleet of vehicles that feature mission-essential equipment. These include fetal heart monitors, transport ventilators, ECG monitors, and custom stretcher. Our medical escorts ensure that patients reach their destinations safe and sound. We are available 24/7, so you can call us anytime.

We are the most cost-effective and safest option available if you need to travel long distances. If you have any special needs, just tell us, and we will be happy to help you.

Comfort

Our goal is to drive our clients to their destination with less stress and disturbance to them. We assign a vehicle based on the driver’s knowledge of the medical facility and the distance of the trip. We ask for specific pieces of information such as the patient’s name, contact number, address, and special requirements such as a wheelchair, the date and time of the trip, and the contact number, name and address of the destination.

Disabled people and the elderly usually depend on others to reach their destination. They have to ask their friends or family members to take them to the hospital for their checkups or medical appointments. By getting NEMT services, they can travel without depending on others.

Privacy

We treat every patient with respect. We know the importance of privacy, so we make sure that you’re comfortable throughout the journey. When you book NEMT services, you don’t need to worry about crowds or the usual problems associated with public transportation. Our vans are equipped with essential medical equipment such as fluids, which will allow our medical escorts to manage the patient’s condition until they reach the medical facility or destination. We can also tailor the trip to a specific situation to ensure the patient’s comfort and safety.

Our medical escorts consist of drivers and nurses who have the necessary skills and certification skills for easy and safe transport. We attend training courses on a regular basis to stay up-to-date with the latest regulations. They can assess the patient’s condition and provide medical assistance right away. NEMT can also be used by those who were just discharged from the hospital. Emergency helicopters and ambulances are occasionally utilized for non-emergency transport, but these vehicles should be reserved for emergencies.

There’s no need for many medical professionals when you are not in an emergency. With NEMT services, you can actually save money.
