You Gotta Eat
One thing that can slip one's mind when planning a long distance medical transport is nutrition. The majority of our patients suffer from some form of chronic illness and many are of advanced age. At all points in the care and rehabilitation process an adequate diet is crucial. It should be standard for a service to consider your patient or loved-one's nutritional needs. This is why we include the price of patient and rider meals in our transport price. A patient or loved-one moving over long distance is subject to a lot of stress from bumpy roads and being anxious to get home. This stress increases the need for a diet that supplies the body with what it needs. Whether or not you choose Ameritrans to provide you with long distance transport, remember that a diet rich in nutrients and protein is vital to recovery.
