Cot & Bariatric Transport Service

We use the Ferno Powerflexx Powered Ambulance Cot and LBS Bariatric Board.

 

We understand...

Sometime transport requires more assistance than a driver's helping hand. That is why Medstar Transportation offers cot & bariatric transport.

What is stretcher transport?

Cot transport, also known as stretcher transport, involves transporting a client on a 83" x 24" x 33" Ferno Powerflexx Powered Ambulance Cot for comfortable and safe travel (load limit under 700 lbs). LBS Jr. Bariatric Boards are also available, which extend the width of the cot to a maximum of 41" and load limit under 1,000 lbs. We always use clean linens for each client and stretchers are kept in a heat regulated room to offer more comfort.

How do I book stretcher transport?

If you are interested in booking a stretcher transport please call 509-248-2004 or email dispatch@gomedstar.com to setup your trip 24 hours in advance. This advanced notice is required because our drivers will spend more time assisting in the comfort of the client before and after the client is transported. We also require an attendant to accompany the client during transport to allow safe transfer. If you are unable to acquire an attendant, we can provide one for an additional fee.

I want to transport a patient or resident at my facility...

Additionally a Stretcher Form must be completed by facilities seeking to transport patients and/or residence, which can be found here. Once completed, please email to dispatch@gomedstar.com or fax to 877-992-8339.
