Our medical escorts/flight nurses’ roles and duties are responsible for assessing the condition and needs of intensive care or wounded patients, and providing competent care for these patients while they are being transferred from the scene of an accident to the medical care facility. In some instances, patients are transferred from hospital emergency rooms that are not equipped to deal with the patient’s level of trauma to a facility that can meet that patient’s needs. However, in either case, the transport nurse is responsible for gathering appropriate and accurate information that can passed onto the receiving care team, and it is to be expected that the patient arrives in better, or at least the same patients conditions than when first picked up.
