Ambulatory & Wheelchair Services:
Patients requiring transportation to/from medical appointments that are not in need of any specialized assistance may qualify for ambulatory or wheelchair level services. Our wheelchair vans meet Office of Regulatory Staff (ORS) requirements, and come equipped with state-of-the-art wheelchair lifts for the patient's safety and comfort. These services are not covered by insurance and will require payment at the time services are rendered. Please feel free to contact our dispatch office for any questions or to schedule transportation.
Basic Life Support (BLS) Services:
Patients requiring BLS level services are typically bed-confined, may require oxygen, and are unable to be safely transferred via any other means. BLS services include an ambulance staffed with an EMT, capable of providing basic assessments, vital sign monitoring, oxygen administration, etc. In some cases, BLS ambulances are utilized to respond to lower acuity emergency requests. All ambulances are registered with the S.C. Bureau of EMS. Typical services provided by BLS crews include, but are not limited to: hospital discharges, wound care, dialysis, rehabilitation, and hospice transportation. Specific questions about eligibility, insurance, etc.? Call our dispatch office today!
Advanced Life Support (ALS) Services:
All ALS units are staffed with a minimum of one (1) Paramedic and one (1) EMT capable of meeting a variety of medical needs. All ALS units come equipped with 12-lead EKG monitoring capabilities, End-tidal CO2 monitoring, a wide-variety of medications (to include controlled substances), CPAP, etc. We also employ specialized equipment, such as a critical care ventilator, for higher acuity patients. ALS services may be emergent or non-emergent (pre-scheduled) in nature. To learn more about our capabilities, or to schedule ALS level services, call our dispatch office today!
