Medic program improves patient safety, helps train young nurses
Daily Republic

A four-year-old program operated by Medic Ambulance has been cutting back the need for critical care transport between hospitals while preserving the safety of patients and giving graduates from nursing schools important hands-on experience.

The Advanced Life Support Critical Care Program was started in May 2012 to address an overuse of critical care transportation of hospital patients who were not critical care patients.

“Critical care transport is an expensive form of transport for a noncritical case,” said James Pierson, vice president of Vallejo-based Medic Ambulance.
