Ambulance Service

EMERGENCY CALL- 09030002187

 

Emergency medical services (EMS), also known as ambulance services or paramedic services, are emergency services which treat illnesses and injuries that require an urgent medical response, providing out-of-hospital treatment and transport to definitive care.

 

With qualifications and training in basic life support (BLS) and advanced life support (ALS), the EMTs (emergency medical technicians) at Atinu Critical Care Hospital provide treatment on the scene to those in need of urgent medical care and are tasked, if need be, with transferring the patient to the next point of care.

 

Our ambulances carry equipment for administering emergency care and respond very rapidly to your emergency calls with our paramedics ready to take control of the situation and save lives. The patient is quickly stabilized and transported to an emergency department for definitive care.

 

We also dispatch ambulances having teams of caregivers that combine nurses, doctors, respiratory therapists, nurse practitioners, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, or all of these.

 

 

What we cover in our ambulance service

 

 

  • Treat and release: When an ambulance treats you but doesn’t take you to the hospital
  • Emergency transfers to or from your home, accident scene, or other location to a hospital
  • Ambulance transfers from a hospital-based emergency room to a hospital more capable of providing the required care
  • Transfers between a hospital or skilled nursing facility and another hospital-based or freestanding outpatient therapeutic or diagnostic department/facility
  • Air ambulance or boat ambulance transport when a land vehicle can’t get to you, or when great distance or other obstacles are involved in transporting you to the nearest hospital with appropriate facilities. Your medical condition must require a speedy admission or indicate you can’t be transferred by other means.
  • Joint response situations: When an ambulance crew needs the help of a paramedic or intermediate EMT to give you advanced life support services

Air Ambulance

An air ambulance is an aircraft used for emergency medical assistance in situations where either a traditional ambulance cannot easily or quickly reach the scene or the patient needs to be repositioned at a distance where air transportation is most practical. Air ambulance crews are supplied with equipment that enables them to provide medical treatment to a critically injured or ill patient. Common equipment for air ambulances includes ventilators, medication, an ECG and monitoring unit, CPR equipment, and stretchers.

At Atinu Critical Care Hospital, we hope that in the not distant future, we’ll provide air ambulance services for aeromedical evacuation.

Continuum of Care

We provide continuum of care from one facility to another

Apart from responding to emergencies, our ambulances perform inter-facility transfer (IFT), providing a continuum of care from one facility to another. During the transport, the patient is monitored to make sure his or her condition doesn’t deteriorate.

In many cases, the patient is being moved from a facility that can’t provide the needed specialty care to a facility that can. In some cases, essential treatment is continued throughout the transport to make sure the patient makes it safely and is ready to receive care at the new hospital.

The staff on an IFT ambulance is an integral part of the patient’s treatment. They’re part of the healthcare team as much as the hospital staff is. At Atinu Critical Care Hospital, we leverage this vital service to ensure that patients in our locality get the treatments they need from the specialists who can provide them.
