Cruise Line/Shipping

If you are a Cruise Line or Maritime company looking to medically transport or repatriate a crew member from your ship or port facility, Sky Nurses is the comprehensive solution.  Our case management service will help expedite the optimal recovery of your crew member with an emphasis on cost containment.  Should your crew member require repatriation, our medical transport service is the cost-effective alternative to an air ambulance for cases where the patient is fit to fly on a commercial aircraft, whether seated in Business or Economy Class seating or by utilizing a stretcher service.

Sky Nurses has developed the best practices, processes, and procedures for trauma case management and the medical repatriation of crew members.  We have a team of experts to obtain the necessary travel documents, clearances, and approvals for completing these very challenging missions successfully and without incident.

Our Medical Team will work directly with the crew member’s treating physician and case manager to arrange discharge and to establish a continued plan of care with patient safety as the highest priority.  This care is ongoing for the duration of the medical transport until the crew member is delivered or discharged to another healthcare facility.  Sky Nurses will obtain medical clearance for travel aboard commercial airlines, including any arrangements for in-flight oxygen or other medical equipment. Sky Nurses is even able to provide pain management during the flight to guarantee comfort and minimize pain for the crew member.

All crew members are escorted by a qualified clinician with extensive training in conducting medical transports. Sky Nurses follows the same standards as accredited healthcare institutions in our daily operation.  All medical treatment administered by the medical escort is based upon the Sky Nurses standing orders provided by our Medical Director, airline policy and procedures, and the American Heart Association Basic Life Support standards.
