Is a patient transport vehicle an ambulance?

Answer . If you already have auto insurance your agent should be able to work something out for you.
I assume by the way the question is asked that it references "need" for ambulance transportation in the sense that a medical insurer would define it. That being the case, the insurer themselves sets the standard for what criteria must be met before a patient is deemed to "need" ambulance transportat…ion. As you can imagine, this gets tricky. The concept of "bed confinement" is even trickier - and may or may not necessitate ambulance transportation in and of itself in the eyes of the payor. In most cases in the US, a patient is defined as "bed confined" by medicare standards if they are unable to stand or walk without assistance, unable to sit in a wheelchair without assistance, and unable to leave the bed without assistance. But again, different organizations have different definitions. Generally, a written and signed physician's statement is enough to justify ambulance transportation. However, for certain payors and in certain circumstances, a reason must be given for why a patient must be transported by ambulance as opposed to any other means. This can range from stating that the patient is "bed confined" to explaining, in detail, why the patient must go by ambulance in terms of what services must be provided to the patient during transport (cardiac monitoring, oxygen therapy, or medication administrations being the most common). Again, depending on the situation at hand, this may or may not answer your question. Feel free to ask more! NJM (MORE)
Answer . if it is a "valuable" car then about $1.00 a mile to haul it. If it is average car, then probably about 10 cents a mile on a car hauler
Under certain circumstances, yes. I work at a Forensic Hospital and we transport patients, (all of which are mentally ill) together.
It would depend what you were trying to transport, where you were trying to transport it, etc...
Depends on patient condition. If there is an immediate threat to life or limb, then the lights and siren should be used. Otherwise, they shouldn't. They come with an inherent risk of distracting other drivers and possibly causing accidents, and in today's "I'm the most important person in the world"… society a lot of people won't even pull over anyway.. Oh, and everywhere has the same laws - if you're running either lights or siren, you run both. Never run a silent lights, because it's illegal. (MORE)
Ok, now to be honest it is not easy to just be selected to even to get a interview, I have heard of Transporters taking applying for like 3 years before being able to get on. If you know someone that is in Health Care it is great to get their help in getting a job at a Hospital. You could also get… your BLS CPR certification, it would help out a lot. To find a class just go to the American Heart Ass. website and it takes a little time to find it but you will find it. Having CPR is a plus and you may get more money. All you need really is a High School Diploma, that is it. It is not to bad of a job, pay is better then working fast food, plus benefits at hospitals are great. You get to see a lot of what happens in a Hospital on a day to day bases. Like a patient is getting a CT done, well I wait to take the patient back to his/hers room. So, I am able to see how the whole process of a CT, and getting to see a lot of the images. If you want to learn a lot you can but if you don't then you don't have to. There is going to be ways to get better jobs in Transport. Most of the time it is based Seniority but, it is nice if you get a chance. From a Transporter you can be come a Dispatcher, or a Courier, both jobs make more money! So, all in all it is not a bad job, it is a easy and can be a rewarding one. I am a Dispatcher, I was lucky to like nights so I was able to become a Dispatcher after only 2 years of working in Transport, no one wants to work night shift. It is a great place to get your foot in the door of any hospital, as well! (MORE)
The most popular for many years has been the Stokes litter. It can easily be rigged for cross country, heli-rescue, rapelling, etc.

Boats were the first transportation vehicles in the world, right back to when Neanderthal Man first learnt to paddle along on floating tree trunks! Sophisticated sailing and rowing vessels were being built thousands of years before Christ was born, both for transportation and for military use.. As …regards the first mechanically-propelled vehicle in the world, I don't think anyone will ever know. Carts and carriages propelled by clockwork, gears or pedal power were experimented with during the European Renaissance by the likes of Leonardo da Vinci and others- during Elizabethan times, the first internal combustion engines were designed and tested, using gunpowder as their fuel. Somebody, somewhere during that time can probably claim to have had success with an early 'car', but their identity will forever be a mystery.. The first KNOWN steam car was built in France just before the Revolution, by engineer Jean Cugnot. He designed a 3-wheeler gun tractor, driven by it's single front wheel with the boiler overhanging the front of the machine. It was inefficient, and following the Revolution of 1789, Napoleon forbade any further development of the concept for many years (incidentally, the tractor itself still survives, and can be seen in a Paris museum). However, it's quite possible that somebody built a steam car earlier than Cugnot, but that this was never pictured or documented.. The first KNOWN successful railway engine was built in 1804 by Cornish engineer Joseph Trevithick. It made it's maiden journey at Penydarren in South Wales, pulling three wagonloads of coal. But as above, somebody somewhere may have beaten him to it and the event just wasn't known about or publicised.. The first KNOWN petrol-engined car was built by Gottlieb Daimler in 1875, who converted an old cart chassis using a 12hp engine. However, the amount of experimentation with chemical engines that was going on throughout the Georgian and Victorian periods, make it almost inconceivable that this could have been the first EVER motor car.

Sometimes, however in most circumstances the Casualty has died onroute to Hospital. This depends on whether the deceased was alive when they wereloaded into the ambulance. If a patient has been pronounced dead atthe scene, then the ambulance doesn't transport. In rural settingssome exceptions can be… made at the discretion of the paramedics. (MORE)
The "King of the Road" is a school bus with the red flashers on! Even running lights and sirens, emergency responders will stop and shut down the siren for children crossing the road.
Why is the red cross required to be placed on any vehicle considered to be a ambulance by Geneva Convention?
It signals that the vehicle is officially an ambulance: if a marked vehicle suddenly begins partaking in combat then it is in breach of the Geneva Convention; if an unmarked vehicle is attacked but later claimed or discovered to be an ambulance, no fault can be placed on the attackers.
\nThey don't transport dead people because they need the ambulances for people who are still living and have a chance to survive. If u transported someone who was already dead it could kill another person at the same time.
Because they are working on the patient inside to stabilize him before transporting him to the Emergency Room.
Because during operation each patient undergoes different kind of anesthesia which may contribute to physical function. Both to make sure that the patient's body would get back to normal function , the health team would facitatate / assist him to mobilize as soon as possible, and also to prevent ser…ious complication which might happen after the surgery such as deep vein thrombosis, delay bowl movement, pneumonia etc. Paradee Nanasilp RN.Dr.PH..

Some types of medical transportation are: Ambulance: A large conveyance vehicle, usually government owned, though there are private ones, that have a special area for medical equipment and the patient in the back. These are good for short distances usually within the same state. Fixed Wing Transpo…rt: These are planes which have been fitted with the equipment necessary to take care of a patient. Think of it like an air ambulance. These are usually for long distance transports, state to state or country to country for example. Rotary Wing Transport: This refers to helicopters which have been fitted with the equipment necessary to take care of a patient. These are often called in on bad trauma scenes because they can transport patient over short distances much quick than an ambulance due to being able to avoid traffic. They are limited by their fuel however, so are not ideal for longer transports. (MORE)
There is no minimum by law. When transferring from a hospital, it is determined by the attending physician as to if he is comfortable with transporting the patient.

Yes. Always check the laws of any states you will be driving through before transporting a firearm through that state, as different states may have different laws pertaining to the manner in which the firearm is transported. There is a Federal law that takes precedence over state law- if the fi…rearm is legal to possess at your point of origin AND at your destination. From Title 18, US code: Â§ 926A. Interstate transportation of firearms Notwithstanding any other provision of any law or any rule or regulation of a State or any political subdivision thereof, any person who is not otherwise prohibited by this chapter from transporting, shipping, or receiving a firearm shall be entitled to transport a firearm for any lawful purpose from any place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm to any other place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm if, during such transportation the firearm is unloaded, and neither the firearm nor any ammunition being transported is readily accessible or is directly accessible from the passenger compartment of such transporting vehicle: Provided, That in the case of a vehicle without a compartment separate from the driver's compartment the firearm or ammunition shall be contained in a locked container other than the glove compartment or console.

If it's your property, you can do whatever you want with it. If you think there might be some question, it would be wise to be prepared to show proof, like a receipt, invoice or work order.
when you look at it you can see that it is easier to read ' ambulance ' easily .
It is written that way because when you look in the rear-view and side-view mirrors, you can see "AMBULANCE" written correctly, and can pull over to the right side of the road to let it through.
It is spelled backwards on the front so that cars in front of it can read the word the right way around using their rear view mirrors :)
It is hard to answer that question. Almost every 15 seconds somewhere in the US there is an ambulance going out to rescue someone from an emergency. A patient could clinically die (go into cardiac arrest) in the back of the ambulance, but they are not legally dead until they reach the emergency ro…om where a physician can pronounce them dead. So it depends on your meaning. for clinical death, it is not that rare anymore to get pulses back with all the drugs and tools a paramedic has at their disposal. Nobody legally dies in the back of an ambulance. (MORE)
It depends on the car, your usage, and what you mean by "green". I had a professor that often used the phrase, "You can't have your cake and eat it, too". If what you want is to minimize your impact on the environment, then you need to minimize you (...make sacrifices); Buying a product doesn't do t…his, your actions do. Walking would be more green. If that is not feasible, use a bike. If that's not feasible, public transport. If that's not feasible, perhaps you can carpool. If that's not feasible, maybe a "green" car would help. Just remember that batteries are made from some fairly toxic substances, and in general only last about five years. The used ones have to go somewhere, and that somewhere is back into the environment. (MORE)

Ambulances are commonly staffed in two person crews. The type of licensure these people have depend on the type of ambulance they are operating in. There are two different types of ambulances: Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS). A BLS truck is staffed with at least one EMT-Bas…ic or sometimes, an EMT-Advanced. The other crew member is either another EMT-B, EMT-A, or an Medical First Responder (MFR). A BLS truck is equipped to deal with most emergencies but will not have all the capabilities of an ALS truck. ALS trucks are staffed with at least one EMT-Paramedic, and either an EMT-B, EMT-A, or another EMT-P. These trucks and crew are trained in advanced methods such as cardiology and pharmacology and are able to do things like EKGs, start IVs and administer drugs, and intubate. An ambulance will always have at least an EMT-Basic, and most ambulances are ALS, meaning they have at least one Paramedic at all times. (MORE)

Aspirin is given to people by EMS providers when there is asuspicion of a heart attack. In most heart attacks, blockage of one or more of the coronaryarteries initially causes pain and, as the blockage worsens, canlead to cardiac arrest. One of the most common forms of blockage isby a clot on the si…des of the blood vessels. Aspirin acts by making the platelets in your blood less "sticky" sothat they won't attach to existing clots, thereby preventing theclot in the heart from getting worse. This gives the person moretime to get to a definitive care facility and get the clot treated. (MORE)
