Just outside Atlanta, Georgia is the community of Smyrna, Georgia. A wonderful family from Shanghai, China was traveling through Smyrna visiting friends when the unfortunate happened. An unexpected medical emergency had left one member hospitalized for an extended stay. Friends contacted Trinity Air Medical to see if we could help get the family home. Our team communicated with the hospital staff in Georgia for a complete medical review. A coordinated travel date was selected and the Trinity Air Medical staff went to work on logistics.
Two Flight Paramedics were selected for the care and transport of the family. One fluent in Mandarin Chinese. This bilingual specialty is critical for patient care, communication with the family and coordination of efforts in China. Ground transportation and first class travel all pre-arranged for a comfortable and cost effective service. Our staff and two clinicians assisted the family over 7600 miles to safely and comfortably get them repatriated. Awaiting our arrival in Shanghai, China were lots of family, friends and an ambulance crew. Always a tireless and humbling experience assisting wonderful people get home.
