Why You Should Use Motor Coaches For Medical Transportation

Today people are more prone to falling sick due to the lifestyle they lead compared to any time in history. Some of the conditions that strike without warning and need immediate medical attention are heart attacks, blood pressure fluctuations or serious accidents. Such cases warrant immediate medical transportation and ambulances are the most common means. However, so many people need less serious medical transportation that it can be far easier to choose a more comfortable means of travel, especially when you are going longer distances. Motor coaches allow for transportation of patients whose situation is non- threatening, helping to free up ambulances for other opportunities.

In one case, a boy who’s leg needed to be treated after a dangerous cut was left unexamined needed to be transported to a specialist in another city. Since this was clearly something that didn’t need emergency care, but the boy was ill and did need constant support so a motor coach was obviously the best option for him. It got him to his destination while he had the attention that he needed, and the cost was far below what his family would have to pay if they were to fly him to the same hospital.

The Key Advantages of using a medical motor coach.

• First and most importantly is the huge amount of space that allows it to hold many more pieces of equipment and personnel compared to ambulances or medical helicopters. The space also allows transportation of family members and even other patients if the need arises.

• The medical staff is able to keep illnesses under control and prevent them from getting worse during travel. It also keeps new problems from occurring away and minimizes any health risk associated with travel. Even though air travel is faster, it still requires using a public airplane, which can cause problems for some patients.

• The cabins are fully furnished for the comfort of the patient and they also have different forms of entertainment, helping to keep the patient’s mind off the trip. The rooms/cabins are personalized and private, allowing for tests that require privacy. The private bathrooms and kitchens are fully stocked and patients can relax with a great view of the country preventing fatigue and other problems.

• There is a professional medical staff that is always onboard the coach, so if your doctor isn’t able to go with their patient, they can make sure that he or she will be taken care during the trip owing to the support from an entire team on the coach.

• Last but not least, they are more affordable compared to air travel and therefore can work with most budgets that would otherwise not allow for medical care while traveling. While insurance is a great way to pay for this type of travel, it sometimes doesn’t apply, which can cause major problems down the road.

Traveling via motor coach is a great choice when you have a patient that has particular needs. You need to make sure that you are getting your patient the right care while they are on the road, as it can dramatically improve the recovery process long-term.
