Medical Transportation Companies to Provide Maximum Patient Safety

March 7, 2011

Medical transportation companies are trusted daily with the needs of their patients.  Safety is an integral part of these needs.  Many medical vans have a lift either on the side of a van or in the back, to raise and lower wheelchairs and motorized chairs in and out of it.  Sometimes these lifts can become slippery while loading or unloading patients in outdoor areas.  It is vital for both the transporter and the patients to remain safe in these loading and unloading situations.

These medical vans can benefit from having slip resistant plates installed on these lifts.  Many times patients are relying completely on the driver to get them in and out of the van.  Slip resistant steel flooring can provide traction in all sorts of weather conditions.  If a lift is being lowered in the rain, the last thing a person would want is for the patient’s wheel chair to roll off the lift before it is in place or to slip backwards when they’re being raised into the van.

Safety is a number one priority in the medical field.  In medical transportation it is vital to protect both the patient and the driver.  Slip resistant steel flooring can offer this protection and give these workers the peace of mind that they can provide the best care possible.
