Healthcare organizations have a responsibility to help their patients be appropriately discharged. However, there are often many issues that need to be addressed at the time of discharge that involve establishing the patient's transportation arrangements. This is where we come in. Sac Medical Transport works with hospitals and other healthcare organizations in order to effectively transport patients who have been discharged to their home or where they will be cared for. This is especially important if the person is under sedation does not have transportation arrangements in place. We understand that every effort must be made to make sure that patients are not placed at an increased risk of harm to themselves or others during their transit home from the hospital.
*Disclaimer - Please note that we do not provide emergency transportation services. If you have a life threatening issue, please call 911.
There are many things to consider when it comes to discharge planning. We help to facilitate the passage from hospital to home in a manner that takes into consideration the patient’s safety. Our aim is to reduce your length of stay and reduce the likelihood that you will have to be readmitted due to a complication that occurred on your way home from the hospital. Getting home can be a vulnerable time for you if you have just undergone a surgery or other medical treatment. We can help you to plan your trip home ahead of time so that when the time comes you have a discharge plan in place.
Sac Medical Transport will involve patients and their families in the discharge planning process before they are discharged from the hospital. We will have a detailed discussion about the requirements for your transportation and the location you will be transported to. We will also consult with your practitioners to find out if you're at risk for any complications during your transit.
Sometimes things do not go according to plan. In situations where you may need a ride home but you are not sure, we can assist you with creating a contingency plan just in case you will not be able to receive the transportation that is not you would, or you are no longer able to drive yourself. If it's the case that you are having to leave unaccompanied, we can provide you with accommodation.
