As a tertiary referral centre with a full range of pediatric subspecialty services, we provide the Round the Clock Emergency Transport Service to retrieve newborns and children from other hospitals.
The transport team, equipped with a broad range of mobile intensive care unit (ICU) equipment, deals with critical illness in children. The team travels by road to the bedside of any child requiring their services, stabilise the patient’s condition and then provide a safe, controlled transfer to Lotus Hospital for Women & Children.
During transit , the team is geared to provide a wide range of ICU services to ensure that the child arrives in the best possible condition at our tertiary care center for definitive and continued care.
The transport team, comprises of neonatal / pediatric critical care fellows / and pediatricians trained in critical care and medical retrievals, with dedicated nursing staff from the Neonatal and Pediatric Intensive Care Units.
Lotus Hospital for Women & Children has three dedicated Emergency Medical Transport vehicles for road retrievals.
Lotus Hospital for Women & Children is the ONLY tertiary care referral children’s hospital in South India to offer chartered air transport in collaboration with Clouds Turbo Aviation Limited. We offer transfer from distant towns and cities with airstrips / airports by both helicopter and fixed wing aircraft. This mode of transport requires medical clearance for safe air travel by our Pediatric Intensivists and Neonatologists. The cost is also high as the cost of the medical team’s air tickets also needs to be borne by the family. Please contact our Pediatric Intensivists / Neonatologists to discuss transferring a child to work out the logistics. If medical clearance is obtained, the next step would be to contact Clouds Turbo Aviation Ltd at : www.turboaviation.in to obtain costing and payment modes. Exact logistics will also be worked out following this.
As a tertiary referral service, the children’s intensive care specialist team coordinates all transports, liaisoning with the referring pediatrician / doctor to obtain vital information before activation of the transport team.
