Offering safe, comfortable and efficient transportation options for patients in wheelchairs or patients with unique conditions is one of the bigger challenges for businesses and facilities that provide healthcare services. At Auto Extras, though, we can help. For 30 years, we have worked with healthcare organisations to create more effective patient transportation options in Brisbane. From hospitals to aged care facilities to groups that offer community transport services, we have tried to do our part in helping these businesses serve their patients more effectively.
At Auto Extras, we’ve realised over the years that the average shuttle transport vehicle is not designed with patient care in mind. These vehicles are often not equipped with wheelchair lifts, wheelchair restraints, medical equipment or other equipment to aid in the handling of patients. For businesses that provide medical care, though, having transport vehicles with these improvements and amenities is a must.
Our respite care transportation work in Brisbane stems from this realisation. We work with hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living communities and senior transport organisations to build custom transporters. These respite care transporters are specifically designed with patients’ needs in mind. For instance, we can outfit shuttles and vans with dependable wheelchair lifts. Our restraints can hold wheelchairs firmly in place so that patients enjoy a comfortable, secure and safe ride from point A to point B.
Our respite care transporters in Brisbane can also include additional seating, so that family members, friends or healthcare professionals can accompany that patient during transport. Patient handling equipment and medical equipment are available, too, in case such items should become necessary for the well-being of the patient at some point in transit.
