The transfer of non-emergency patients between facilities is a major issue for Ontario healthcare providers. The inability to provide timely and reliable patient transfers is, within the hospital sector, compromising access to beds, emergency, diagnostic and specialty services.
The partial transfer of responsibility for ambulance services from the province to municipalities has led, in some cases, to a reduction in the availability of ambulance services for non-emergency calls. In addition, in some communities, hospital restructuring has led to an increase in the number of transfers between facilities within the same area. This is where Quinte Patient Transfer Services comes in, taking care of the non-emergency patients and their transfer needs.
