Transporting patients with suspected or confirmed exposure to communicable diseases is not a new situation in the medical transport industry. Whether the common cold, flu or more serious diseases like TB, SARS, MERS, or Ebola, planning for and mitigating risk of crew exposure and transmission remains challenging for any transport program. The latest on the scene is COVID-19.
Transporting a patient with an emerging infectious disease, like COVID-19, requires planning and training to protect the health and welfare of crewmembers and other patients. This checklist is intended to provide a guide to evaluating current policies and practices used by medical transport programs.
