Question: I’ve heard of crews being asked to transfer patients between facilities with indwelling tubes and lines that are not within their scope, and they don’t have suitable escorts. I had a colleague asked to transport a patient with a chest tube, without an RN escort, to which they refused, but recently saw a crew transporting a patient with a nasal epistax in-situ. I know these have the potential to migrate and cause airway obstruction so didn’t think we should move these without a hospital escort. Could the Base Hospital provide some direction so that it is clearer to paramedics as to what they should do in these cases?
