We at Alert Ambulance strongly believe that no matter what, Patient Care Comes First. We also understand that sometimes it can be difficult to make the decision of whether you should dial 911 or Alert Ambulance when a patient is in need. Our experienced medical staff in conjunction with state and local laws has created a guide for your staff to use when that situation arises. Feel free to print the following guidelines out and keep at each of the nurses stations.
Simply click each photo below for a link to the downloadable PDF of each or click here to download both guides combined into one PDF document.
