Please help me understand how to answer the Transport Provider question for this scenario. ALS on scene requested Life Flight. Life Flight arrives to a Landing Zone destination. ALS drives to landing zone with patient on board to meet Life Flight. Life Flight crew decides to board the ALS Ambulance and ride in that vehicle to the hospital. The helicopter was not used to transport the patient to the hospital. Please help me understand how to answer the Transport Provider question.
I recommend recording 3 – Ambulance/Helicopter Rendezvous as the Scene Provider and 1 – Ambulance as the Transport Provider. This may look a little strange so I also recommend that you utilize the Memo to include a note regarding this scenario (be sure to exclude any provider or patient identifiers from this free-text section). Life Flight is still your transport provider even though they rode in the ALS ambulance since they are now caring for the patient. The information from the Life Flight’s trip sheet will still be used in the Transport section for vitals and other information.
