NEW YORK, Aug. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — March 2020: the COVID-19 pandemic creates serious challenges for patient transport.
The worldwide spread of COVID-19 had an immediate and devastating effect on the people & their ability to reach essential medical treatments. Emergency transport was needed for victims of the pandemic, and many people requiring vital regular treatments found that their usual non-emergency medical transportation companies were unable to provide that service. This has continued throughout 2020, leaving many without essential transport.
Without the essential lifeline our transport provides, many more lives could have been in danger simply through the lack of routine care and medical assistance. That’s not something anyone here at Myle Care was able to abide by, so Myle jumped into action to do what was necessary.
Right from the start, the company has proven itself by delivering medical supplies and equipment in New York with the ExtraMyle program at no cost to those it benefits.
The company quickly extended the services to dedicate a portion of our wheelchair van and sedan fleets to be specially adapted to transport patients who had tested positive for COVID-19 and urgently needed to attend hospital appointments. Patients such as those who needed life-saving procedures such as dialysis or regular essential therapies.
Myle Care wheelchair van and sedan fleet vehicles are adapted to comply with all the COVID-19 prevention guidelines.
Every vehicle is regularly washed, and the interior cabins are thoroughly sterilized after every trip. Myle drivers are fully COVID trained and equipped with essential PPE (personal protection equipment), such as face masks, gloves, sanitizers, and disposable suits.
The company also uses EPA approved disinfectant sprays and wipes to clean all surfaces, handles and windows in between passengers.
