Frequently Asked Questions

What type of patient will you (or won't you) transport?

I am new to this, and I'm not even sure if my dad's condition is too serious for you to accomodate. How much information do you need to determine this?

MMT specializes in long distance (and local within a specified area) non-emergency transportation. We will never arrange transportation for a patient whose needs, we feel, fall beyond our scope of care. Most patients who have been discharged from a hospital, or cleared by their physician to be transported are stable enough to travel with MMT.

Those who are too unstable, often fall into the air ambulance category requiring a flight nurse/Paramedic or a flight physician and need constant medical intervention.

Does the fact that my mom needs oxygen make her too critical for your service?

We are _definitely able _to continue oxygen during transport. Oxygen is considered a prescription drug, so one needs a doctors order to initiate it. If the patient is already receiving it, or has orders to use it as needed (PRN), we are able to provide it during transport.

My sister is in great shape except that she is incontinent and wears diapers. Because of this, Im not comfortable taking her in my car on such a long trip across country. Can your staff accomodate her needs?

Yes. We change diapers, accomodate feeding tubes, continue oxygen, empty foley catheter bags, maintain eating schedules and help insure that the patient stays on their medication schedule. For patients with restrictive diets (pureed, soft, diabetic,etc..) we help insure that those restrictions are followed as well.
