Ambulance VSL Explained

Children may find the flashing lights and loud siren of an ambulance disconcerting, especially if they’re going to the hospital. Here, a paramedic offers some insight into how this process works and what can be expected.

VSLs and traditional taxis are two primary transport solutions utilized for providing wheelchair accessible transport between centers of healthcare in an assisted position and their respective areas of residence. VSLs and traditional taxis are specifically tailored to facilitate transport of sick, injured patients as well as people with reduced mobility (excluding those classified as non transferables ). Furthermore, these methods may also provide suitable transport of elderly without needing ongoing support from healthcare facilities.

Transport services provided include reception and accompanying the requester along with replacement of medical material in case of issue. According to Article L6312-1 of the Public Health Code, pricing for such transport depends on presentation of a valid prescription medicale.

Costs associated with equivalent services provided by an ambulance transport are covered entirely by health insurance. Accessing similar medical detention and assistance services becomes especially evident when transporting patients over long distances.
