Skilled Nursing Transport: NEMT for Patients in Tucson

Dec 5, 2023

The realm of skilled nursing facilities requires not just meticulous medical care but also seamless transportation solutions to maintain the continuum of care. As patients transition between medical appointments, therapies, and treatments, there’s an innate need for reliable transport. Serving this very niche is Saguaro Medical Transport, providing unparalleled Non-Emergency Medical Transport (NEMT) for Tucson’s skilled nursing facility residents.

The Dynamics of Skilled Nursing

Patients in skilled nursing facilities often have complex medical needs:

  • Regular Check-Ups: Chronic conditions often require frequent medical oversight and check-ups.

  • Therapeutic Sessions: Be it physiotherapy, occupational therapy, or other specialized sessions, patients need consistent attendance.

  • Specialized Treatments: Some treatments like dialysis or wound care might be provided off-site, necessitating safe transport.

In all these scenarios, the movement of the patient outside the facility’s premises needs to be safe, timely, and efficient.

Transport Challenges Skilled Nursing Facilities Face

Coordinating transportation for skilled nursing residents comes with its unique challenges:

  • Diverse Patient Needs: Some residents might be ambulatory while others might require wheelchairs or other support.
