If you are a Healthcare Facility looking to transport a patient to or from your hospital or rehabilitation center, Sky Nurses is the comprehensive solution for patient travel. Our transport service offers 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 utilizing a stretcher service.
Sky Nurses has developed processes and procedures to ensure that all medical repatriations are completed ethically and legally with the interests of the patient and family held at the highest priority. We have a team of experts to obtain all necessary travel documents, clearances, and approvals for completing these very challenging missions successfully and without incident.
Our RN Intake Coordinators will work directly with the patient’s discharging physician and case manager to provide continued care after the patient leaves the hospital. This care continues for the duration of the travel until the patient is either delivered home or discharged to another healthcare facility. Sky Nurses will obtain medical clearance if necessary for travel aboard commercial airlines and arrange for any in-flight oxygen or approval of other medical equipment as needed.
Furthermore, our clinical staff also offers assistance to patients who need prescriptions filled before leaving the hospital. Sky Nurses is even able to provide oxygen and pain management during transit to guarantee comfort and minimize pain for the patient.
All patients 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.
