Tips When Booking Stretcher Transport

Tips When Booking Stretcher Transport

Do you or your loved one, who cannot sit up unassisted, have an upcoming appointment? Do you need stretcher transportation? It is important that you do not miss appointments that are vital to your well being. Book a Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) service to get you there on time, even for long-distances. It’s important to have the comfort and safety you need while on the road, regardless if your appointment is near or far.

HealthLift of Arizona is the most trusted when it comes to NEMT. Before that, what should you consider when going with an NEMT service? Take a look at what you ought to look into?

The Vehicle You’re Traveling In

When arranging transportation for stretchers, you must consider a few factors before deciding which company to go with. You should feel safe knowing the vehicle won’t break down while transporting. That’s why Arizona trusts HealthLift NEMT of Arizona. HealthLift’s vehicles are newer-models, ADA-compliant and regularly maintained, which you have to consider when looking for a safe, reliable NEMT. 

Your Appointment

It’s important to double check the date and time of your appointment because it’s a hassle, having to go through the trouble of transporting with a stretcher, just to learn that you’re actually scheduled for another date. Write it down or have it in your mobile device’s calendar. Make sure to reserve a ride ahead of time, to ensure availability.

If You Require Bariatric Transportation

If you need bariatric transportation, inform the NEMT service ahead of time, to ensure they have the appropriate vehicle that can accommodate larger stretchers. If you’re unsure if you or your loved one needs bariatric transportation, then it’s a good idea to contact HealthLift  beforehand. We provide heavy duty, bariatric stretchers for customers to use, along with oxygen supply (must be administered by a caregiver).

Local or Long-Distance Transportation

Most appointments are local, but if you’re required to travel long distances, then it’s important to take note of the long hours of travel, where the state of the vehicle, and the comfort level are more significant to take into account.

Transporting on a stretcher does require effort but with a reliable NEMT service that provides comfort and safety, like HealthLift of Arizona, then transportation doesn’t need to be complicated.
