Repatriation is a medical pscription written or validated by a supervising doctor at Medic’Air. The decision about mode of repatriation can be reviewed at every stage of mission according to the evolution of the clinical state of the patient or the geopolitical context. It is a dynamic process, during which a client is informed of new occurrences.
The escorts on mission are continuously monitored and they inform us by phone or email of each step taken during the mission.
Different ways of repatriations are available according to known medical parameters or logistics: by ground transportation (ground ambulance, high speed train, ambulance boat…) or by air transportation (commercial flights and / or air ambulance).
psence or absence of an escort and the type of escort put at disposal (a doctor and / or nurse and / or care assistant) with its specific medical equipment is also a decision validate by doctors at Medic’Air according to the principle of Criticality of application to each mission.
Schematically, our missions are categorized in four levels of urgency:
This differentiation is based on an internal evaluation score, which allows our supervising doctors, taking into account objective data:
to validate for immediate initiation of a MEDEVAC in the emergency mode (Rescue or Primary) if needed, complying with the homogenous procedure for all the doctors concerned, including second opinion of the Managing Doctor.
Since a year Medic’Air’s goal is to repatriate as soon as possible the patients to their home countries and particularly from Mediterranean countries, the Indian Peninsula, to limit contamination by bacteria multi-resistant (BMR). After an initial reconnaissance, it seems beneficial to evacuate patients hospitalized in these high risk countries in less than 48 hour.
