About Us - Rao Ambulance Services


When you need to take a patient to a hospital for treatment but are not in a life-threatening situation, you can call the Non-Emergency Ambulance Service. 75% – 80% of medical transportation services are for non-emergency purposes.

What Is Non-Emergency Ambulance Service?

A patient transportation service used for patients who are not in a life-threatening situation is non-emergency ambulance service. It is used especially when:

  • The patients must travel to and from the hospital to their residence before or after treatment.
  • The patients must be transferred from a general hospital to a surgical or specialized hospital.
  • The elderly should be taken to hospitals for treatment.
  • Bedridden patients need to go to the hospital for post-operative procedures such as suture removal, etc.
  • Pregnant women in labor should be taken to the hospital to give birth.
  • Incapacitated patients must be transported to the hospital at scheduled clinic appointments.
  • Patients with kidney problems need to go to the hospital for dialysis
  • Cancer patients must be taken to hospitals for chemotherapy.
  • Patients with limb injuries or spinal problems require physiotherapy
  • There is a lack of free public transportation to get patients to hospitals in rural or remote areas.

All of the above situations require a patient transportation service in a non-emergency setting. Here, the patient needs not only transportation, but also basic clinical care with the help of doctors and nurses. However, basic life support or critical care may not be necessary in non-emergency situations. Therefore, a non-emergency ambulance service may not have all the equipment that an emergency ambulance has. In addition, non-emergency ambulance service requires advance reservation and advance notice to schedule patient pickup and drop-off.

Essential Equipment In Non-Emergency Ambulance Service

Below is an ambulance team checklist for non-emergency ambulance services.

Ambulance Bag Or First Aid Kit

The ambulance bag is a medical kit with basic first-aid supplies and a trauma kit. This is the first thing a paramedic looks for in an emergency. To be extra safe, all ambulances carry a first aid kit or ambulance bag, including non-emergency ambulance service.

The ambulance bag contains bandages, medicines, syringes, drops, etc. Medications include antiseptics, antibiotics, antipyretics, pain relievers, sedatives, etc.

Vital Signs Measurement Equipment

The non-urgent ambulance service is fully equipped with all the necessary devices to measure the patient’s vital signs. They include a clinical thermometer to record the patient’s temperature, a sphygmomanometer to measure blood pressure, a stethoscope to measure the patient’s pulse, etc.

Pocket Mask With One-Way Valve For Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation

Ideally, non-emergency ambulance service is not designed for emergencies. But no one knows when an emergency might arise. Therefore, the non-emergency ambulance service is equipped with a one-way valve pocket mask to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in case the patient has a cardiac arrest or respiratory problem mid-transport.

Portable Oxygen Cylinder

Transporting elderly people is a challenging task for ambulances. There are high chances of elderly people suffering shortness of breath or respiratory failure during transportation. That is why a portable oxygen cylinder is always available in the non-emergency ambulance service to deal with any emergency situation.

Portable Suction Unit

For patients with respiratory conditions or for the elderly, a portable suction unit is essential in a non-emergency ambulance service. This unit helps suction out mucus and fluids to clear the airways.

Detachable Drip Stand

In non-emergency ambulance service, a detachable drip stand is provided for intravenous administration of the patient during transport.

Bedpan, Urinal, Kidney Dish

Bedridden patients with physical disabilities require additional assistance during their transfer. They may suffer from urinary or bowel incontinence or may experience vomiting. Bed linen, urinals, and kidney dishes are available from the non-emergency ambulance service to help these patients.

Bed Or Stretcher Equipment

This is the most important piece of equipment in a non-emergency ambulance service. The patient needs to go to the hospital and home. This requires the use of a wheelchair or stretcher. The ambulance should also have spinal support plates and collars for transporting patients with head or spinal injuries.

The above items are part of the essential ambulance kit checklist. A non-emergency ambulance service may have additional equipment such as a pulse oximeter, nebulizer, or even incubator medical equipment if they are transporting newborns. The non-emergency ambulance service has the same importance as the emergency ambulance service in transporting patients. Always hire a non-emergency professional ambulance service to transport patients in the safest way.
