Improved Availability of Beds

Ride N Safe's one to two (1-2) hour response times - 24 hours/day, 7 days/week, 365 days/year - help Case Management Teams manage the ongoing challenge of bed availability.  Especially during periods of flu, pneumonia, etc..., being able to efficiently transition patients from in-patient to out-patient status helps hospitals care for increased numbers of patients.

Managing discharges involves much more than making sure a patient is ready to safely leave the hospital.  In addition, there is a lot of "behind the scenes" planning that must be completed before someone transitions to another level of care or even back to their own home.  Matching patients with appropriate facilities and medical capabilities is foremost and then all the patient choices must be selected, insurance coverage needs authorization, care plans must be prepared, medications must be reconciled, durable medical equipment must be arranged, etc...  All parties involved work to coordinate and communicate to safeguard patients' wellbeing, promote recover, and ease their anxiety during a very stressful time.

Since 2015, Ride N Safe's "average" monthly response times have remained under two hours for transport requests from call to patient pick up.  Pre-scheduled appointments run 98-100% on-time every day.

Extension of Staff's Patient-Centered Care

RNS drivers are not just transporters.

Because many drivers have worked in EMS and other patient care environments, passengers are well cared for "in transit" to the next level of care.

RNS understands that its employees represent your facility when providing services for New Admissions and to current residents.  

Ability to Serve Patients that Some Transportation Providers may Refuse

RNS can handle mobility-impaired passengers (wheelchair and reclining stretcher-chair) with medical complications.  Those requiring extra attention may:

  • be oxygen-dependent
  • weigh over 300lbs.; RNS can handle bariatric passengers up to 450 lbs.
  • have "other" existing medical issues - tracheotomies, wound vacs, etc...
  • infections that require contact precautions to protect the patient and the driver
  • dementia/Alzheimers

Dispatch will ask about these and other concerns when scheduling the transport, then they will match the appropriate van and staff accordingly.

Decreased Costs

Compared to in-house facility resources and/or out-sourced providers, RNS can help deliver savings for many facilities with:

  • attractive volume discounts
  • discounts for early payments (before Net 30)
  • NO charge fee for a facility staff member, or loved one, to accompany a passenger
  • NO extreme "after hours", "weekend" or "holiday" rates
  • responsive drivers who arrive in a timely fashion so staff can continue to care for other residents
  • large metro and rural service area

Complimentary Transportation Audit

Upon an Administrator's request, Ride N Safe is glad to help analyze current transportation costs, trends, possible overpayments, and opportunities for savings.

Increased Staff Productivity

Facilities are busier today than ever.  Ride N Safe works diligently to streamline the transport request process and avoid any delays in transport that affect care.

This means that staff has more time to manage other facility-based tasks.  They do not waste time: 

  • having to call multiple times to make sure the transport is scheduled, confirmed, and on-time
  • waiting on drivers to arrive in order to make it to destinations in a timely fashion
  • rescheduling resident appointments because of a no-show driver and/or a late arrival
  • accompanying patients; upon request, drivers can "wait" with the patient rather than staff having to leave the facility

Trusted Service

After ten years in business, customers have the confidence to entrust their patients/residents with Ride N Safe for non-emergency medical transportation needs. 

RNS realizes that staff must honor residents' and families' decision making, however, it is comforting to confidently recommend a provider that has a proven track record.

Additional Support

RNS offers customers with support all year long (contracted or "as needed basis") if:

  • a facility van is unavailable
  • a facility van driver calls in sick
  • patient's or resident's destination is "out of area"
  • existing medical issues need extra attention
  • outsourced transportation isn't available or is too costly

For contracted customers, Ride N Safe allows provides Emergency Evacuation support for facility emergency planning should the need ever arise.

Peace of Mind

Follow-up appointments and treatments (therapy, dialysis, chemotherapy, wound care, rehab, etc...) are critical for quicker recovery to improve someone's quality of life.

The Ride N Safe Team understands the importance providing timely service, along with compassion, as passengers struggle to overcome injury, illness, or disease processes.  Many times, as people become so familiar with Ride N Safe drivers, they even request their favorite drivers!  Lots of good conversations happen on drives to and from appointments and treatments.  

Additional Patient-Centered Services

When possible, Ride N Safe will work with individual customers and facilities to help arrange transportation, close by or some distance away, for:

  • weekly church services
  • weddings
  • funerals
  • family reunions
  • community events

Ride N Safe is anxious to help support a patient's or resident's ability to thrive.  Sometimes the best medicine is being with friends, family, and neighbors while someone recovers.
