As a NEMT transportation service provider, we follow rigid yet necessary rules in keeping our vehicles safe and virus-free. Catering to a wide range of clients and patients means having our doors open to different possible pathogens. In recent times, disinfection and thorough cleaning of vehicles do not only become part of a usual business routine but are already a center point for a safe and secure uninterrupted flow of transportation business.
The ambulette service in Massachusetts that we provide can be relied on as we are strict in helping the nation flatten the curve of current COVID-19 infections. People who are known or suspected to have COVID-19 may use non-emergency transportation services to receive essential medical care. As a part of the NEMT industry, we make sure that we follow health and safety protocols from getting ready to pick up our client to prepare our vehicles to pick up another.
NEMT vans, cars, and other passenger vehicles must be kept clean and disinfected at all times. At a minimum, commonly touched surfaces in the vehicle must be cleaned and disinfected at the beginning and end of each shift and between transporting passengers. Providing adequate ventilation while transporting must also be followed. We at Trinity Transport LLC use detergent or soap with water for hard non-porous surfaces within the interior of our vehicles. For soft or porous surfaces such as fabric seats, we also use EPA-approved cleaning materials. Other surfaces that include electronic ones, we use cleaning substances with 70% alcohol.
Of course, while cleaning and disinfecting vehicles, gloves and other disposable PPE are used to assure non-contamination. So, if you plan on traveling to non-emergency appointments soon, call our non-emergency medical transportation services in Worcester, Massachusetts, to book a ride!
