The Transportation Cost-effective Alternative
Medical transportation is one of those things that sometimes gets overlooked in planning care until the last minute. When people think of medical transportation, they almost immediately think of Air Ambulance services. These high-flying jet aircraft transport critically ill patients around the world but are costly. For some patients, it is the best, if not the only option. What if a patient doesn't need that level of care but can't fly on their own?
Let's say you have a woman with Dementia who needs to get from Chicago to Phoenix. Or how about a young man with a traumatic brain injury in Southern California who needs to get to a rehabilitation center here in Chicago?
Enter Bob and the Flying Angels team. Flying Angels has a network of specially trained doctors and nurses that do just that. Using commercial airlines, like Delta, United, Lufthansa, etc. they can take a patient anywhere across the country and around the world. All Flying Angels Flight Nurses and Flight Coordinators are critical care trained Registered Nurses. They have five years or more, of ICU/ER experience and flight physiology training, many having over 20 years of experience.
Who can fly?
If a patient can sit up in a first-class seat, they qualify for a domestic commercial flight with one of the Flying Angels. For international flights, stretcher and ICU Pod transport is also often an option. What kind of patients do we typically help? We specialize in transporting traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury patients to rehabilitation hospital around the country. Flying Angels employs the proper equipment for patients with Oxygen dependency. Patients with Dementia and elderly clients find compassionate care, safety, and comfort throughout the journey.
The flight is only part of the service
Flying Angels realize that the commercial flight is only a part of the transport. Our RN Flight Coordinators handle all details, bedside to bedside; from medical clearances for the airlines, to ground transportation to and from the airport. As needed, we use custom reclining wheelchairs that allow our patients to get to the airport and ride through the airport in better comfort than a standard wheelchair.
Rest assured that when choosing Flying Angels for air medical transport, all air and ground transport logistics are expertly handled by an RN Flight Coordinator & dedicated travel agent. The Flying Angels team has extensive critical care & emergency experience and are fully qualified in-flight physiology. Flight Nurses & Flight Coordinators are registered nurses who have graduated from accredited nursing programs in the United States. We have earned an excellent reputation for the service we provide. We have received hundreds of five-star reviews on social media from satisfied clients. Every case is unique, so we know that we have to earn our wings every day, with every flight.
To sum up, Flying Angels is a cost-effective alternative to air ambulance services because we use commercial airlines; clients avoid paying exorbitant fees for private flights. An experienced flight nurse will plan everything; like checking in, coordinating the boarding process, wheelchair assistance, in-flight medical care, and much, much more.
