Stretcher transportation for non-emergency purposes may be necessary in a scenario where, for example, a person must remain bedridden following a surgery. If this is indeed the case, there are items to take into account to ensure the person is receiving the utmost care.
Professional and safe door to door transport is vital when it comes to patients on stretchers. It’s simple: if the person is confined to a stretcher, it’s not exactly feasible for them to be waiting on the street in order to be picked up. With this type of transport, the driver comes into the home or the healthcare facility and carries the person out safely and onto the vehicle, repeating the process once they have been transported to their destination.
With something as sensitive as a stretcher, it is imperative to make sure that the person or team transporting the individual is professional and makes safety a priority. Additionally, the transport vehicle should be equipped to handle stretchers, including remaining secure during transport.
