Each of our vehicles are equipped with a regular sized wheelchair (with footrests and leg extenders), and our drivers deliver the wheelchair to the discharging patient’s room, introduce themselves, and assist in transferring the patient from bedside to our wheelchair. Discharging is quick, easy and professional, and on arrival home or at the admitting facility, we wheel our patient to his/her room, assist in transferring to his/her bed or chair, and hand deliver the hospital’s discharge paperwork to the family or facility staff. It’s the little extra things we do that make the 360 difference – we check the room for left behind items, we carry personal belongings and any required medical equipment to our vehicle and into the patient’s new home … and it’s all included in our bedside to bedside discharge service.
With a large vehicle fleet and a reputation for reliability and flexibility, 360 provides ambulatory, wheelchair and stretcher discharge transports from every hospital in the St. Louis metropolitan area. Families, long term care communities, skilled nursing and rehab facilities, hospital social workers, case managers and discharge planners all appreciate our ability to provide short-notice discharge pick-ups, often with only 1-2 hour’s prior notice.
