So, did you plan for air-evacuation and purchase your ticket ahead of time?
Air patient travel involves more than high speed transportation for sick or injured passengers. It’s also a health care service operating under changing circumstances. Surprisingly, there is little government or other regulatory oversight of the air ambulance industry, so it is important to ask questions before making a decision. We have worked with the board of directors, key officers, organizers and auditors of the CAMTS (Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems), as well as International SOS and the Mayo Clinic to observe and advise them on how to set policies, govern their audit procedures and audited many of the certified air ambulance operators across the USA and abroad. The staff at JRAL has been flying both civilian and military medevac missions in both fixed wing and rotary-wing aircraft and knows what to look for. In addition to experienced pilots, we require experienced paramedics and nurses for our customers and finds operators that have state-of-the-art equipment to supply the same level of care that one would see in a hospital’s ICU.
