When it comes to serious health situations, there should be no short cuts. That is why that at Human Touch, we ensure all of our staff are professionally trained to ensure the risks taken are at a minimum.
Once a team has got the patient(s) safely into a vehicle, the transporter takes charge. These staff need to know how to communicate in a calm and succinct manner with patients throughout the entire journey: the mental stress and unanswered questions that patients face can be as dangerous as the medical situations they are facing.
Furthermore, the person in charge of transporting the patient needs to be trained to deal with often stressful situations. In many cases, time is a limited resource, so not only do transporters need to be able to keep the patient calm, they need to get them to the destination as soon as possible.
It isn’t just imperative to be qualified in emergency situations, either: even transporting a patient from a hospital to a nursing home requires staff with a soothing temperament and handling expertise to ensure the patient feels as safe, relaxed, and as looked-after as possible.
