Even if you have not used Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) services, there is still a good chance that you know at least one person that has a strong dependency on the services. NEMT services have been becoming more of a necessity with demand being higher than ever, and are critical for patients to get to and from their medical appointments, hospitals, pharmacies or urgent care when they are unable to otherwise.
As the name implies, these trips are non-emergencies and have no immediate threat to the health and well-being of the patient, but are still indispensable if the patient is unable to transport themselves for a variety of reasons such as either not having a license or being unable to operate a vehicle. Due to the medical-related nature of NEMT, there are strict regulations in place in which the transportation providers must meet for the benefit of both the patients and drivers.
The NEMT kits offered at Survival Supply are designed to help meet compliance with DOT and OSHA regulations. Equipped with components like mountable automotive fire extinguishers, DOT triangles, and blood borne pathogen / body fluid spill kits, our NEMT kits have just the supplies needed to deal with any situations that arise.
People can be unpredictable especially if they may have any medical conditions that involve bodily fluids, so a Blood Borne Pathogen and Bodily Fluid Spill Kit is great for the safety of the driver and any other passengers. Anything as small as an infant or a car-sick / ill individual will make you glad you have the kit on hand. The ANSI First Aid Kit helps with a wide variety of other issues that can occur from simple bandages and antiseptic wipes to burn treatments and gauze.
Fire Extinguishers are a must have for such services and are great to have in general, in case a situation arises with a fire and a patient that cannot be removed quickly from the scene due to a physical limitation or other factors. The 3 DOT Compliant Triangles are required to alert other vehicles to minimize chances of a collision.
These kits are also beneficial to have if you transport people in general, such as a taxi or other transport-type service and aren’t specifically an NEMT transport. Even for everyday users, these kits are great to have just for general use as they will cover most automotive necessities.
