SAFE PATIENT TRANSPORT

Home > Assess


ASSESS

Assess your patient using the Pre-Transfer Safety Screen:

  • Does your patient need a cardiac monitor?
  • Does your patient have an artificial airway (endotracheal or tracheostomy tube)?
  • Does your patient require mechanical ventilation (invasive or noninvasive)?
  • Does your patient require >50% oxygen to maintain SpO2 above 90%?
  • Does your patient receive continuous infusions?
  • Is your patient disoriented, unable to communication or comatose?
  • Is your patient totally or significantly physically dependent for care?

These questions can help determine your patient’s capacity for safe travel and possible need for a clinical escort.
