Critical & Specialty Care Services New Jersey
Critical patients need critical care, and critical care demands comprehensive critical care transportation. When a patient’s clinical need exceeds the available resources of the facility where they are located, Alert Ambulance Service’s Specialty Care Transport Unit (SCTU) is called to service. We strive to continue being the most reliable ambulance service New Jersey residents can ask for, and that extends to critical care transportation for the most vulnerable of patients. An experienced group of licensed and credentialed critical care nurses provides patients with the highest levels of monitoring and care during these exceptional situations. Our specialty care ambulances will help patients in dire need safely arrive at a facility that is fully equipped to meet all of their medical needs.
Providing these EMS (Emergency Medical Services) services since 1999, Alert’s SCTU has safely transported critical care patients in New Jersey and throughout the Northeastern United States. This experience has taught us that the key to make critical care services work is constant communication between medical professionals at every stage of the patient’s journey. Upon receiving a request at Alert’s Communication Center, the SCTU nurse contacts the sending facility nurse to discuss the patient’s condition and determine any special needs before transport. The Alert SCTU Team then responds with a staff of New Jersey State Certified Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and the SCTU Nurse, wasting no time in sending one of our specialty care ambulances to the sending facility in question.
Certified Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs)
Upon arrival at the sending facility, Alert’s Specialty Care Transportation Unit (SCTU) staff collaborates with the medical and nursing staff to prepare the patient for transport. With the latest in critical care transport technology, the patient is placed in one of Alert’s dedicated Specialty Care Ambulances. These vehicles are designed and equipped with the monitoring, pharmaceutical, durable and disposable supplies needed to care for these patients during transport, all of them expertly operated by our trained EMTs (emergency medical technicians). Our specialty care ambulances are equipped to handle our patient’s every need, regardless of their overall level of mobility, age, or general health. At our destination, Alert’s SCTU staff provides a comprehensive report on the patient’s condition and response to the transport while transferring care to the receiving medical and nursing staff. After all, careful communication between medical staff is among the single most important aspects of EMS (Emergency Medical Services), keeping everyone fully knowledgeable as to the patient’s specific health requirements.
