Are we transporting neonates and pediatric patients as safe as possible?
 
Being a relatively new industry, there is alot that can be done to improve the safety practices of how we transport sick infants and children. For the last 30 years dedicated staff have improved the transport systems and delivery of medical care to patients requiring specialized transport. In thirty years few companies have stepped forward to make this the primary focus of their business, simply because it isn't a big money maker for them. Regardless of the past, we feel strongly that critical care transport teams should be given the best technology and products to accomplish their missions to the highest standards possible. Therefore, we are committed to design and provide products for achieving the highest care delivery standards that our customers and their patients expect.

Basic premises that we design our products around:
  • The needs during the transport process do not alway match the needs of the inpatient unit, therefore the transport environment should have the appropriate tools for delivering superior care
  • Products should not be a  host for pathogens to be spread
  • Products that come in direct contact with patients should be single patient use
  • Products must be designed to first cause no harm to the patient
  • Products should add safety to the patient and caregiver
  • Products must be practical
  • Products must add value to the patient and/or caregiver
  • Products must be easy to use in the intended environment
  • Products should be designed with help of caregivers
  • Products must be affordable
  • Packaging must be informative and educational

Things that we all can do...........
  • Seek out better products to achieve safety
  • Don't take chances during transport, response modes using emergency lights and sirens should be justifiable based on the patient's condition and location.
  • Mode of transport should meet the patient's needs and avoid excessive risk compared to the patient's condition.
  • Always use trained and qualified personnel for specialized transport, personnel must be comfortable and familiar with working in the transport environment to perform safely.
  • Put maintenance of transport equipment and vehicles as a top priority.
  • Develop a PIAP program and routinly excercise it to ensure patient and team safety. (Post Incident Action Plan)
  • Get involved in safety programs and organizations that affect the transport standards. Be a voice for positive change!
