Medical Procedure Escorts provides active and retired EMS, firemen & law enforcement officers to escort clients to and from their Medical Procedure. Quite often when a person has a medical procedure scheduled by their doctor, the patient is mandated to have an adult present who can escort the patient home after the procedure. Most of us will contact a trusted family member or friend to assist us and escort us home safely. However, there are times when no family member or friend is available, but you still need to provide an escort or the doctor will not perform the surgical procedure. On such occasions, please contact Medical Procedure Escorts and our trained and courteous (non medical) escorts will enter the doctor’s office, sign in if requested, and wait until the procedure is completed, and when authorized by the doctor escort the patient home, making sure the patient arrives home safely.
Our escorts will provide non-medical services only. We do not train escorts to provide any medical services, however using common sense and “general awareness” and with the knowledge from their previous or current professional background this may give them an increased awareness if a patient is possibly ill. We instruct escorts to look for signs that a patient may be sick, such as watery eyes, flushed face, sweating in normal conditions, and any confusion in a patient. They will also study the patients coordination, judgment and memory (to the best of their untrained ability) before and after the procedure, and always ask the patients if they are capable of caring for themselves before departing.

Why Patients Need an Escort
Patients who are sedated for a procedure, need an escort after their procedure is completed. It is essential that you have a responsible adult who can act as your escort. After surgery, a patients coordination, judgment and memory may be impaired for some time, due to the sedation, and it is important that you have someone available to ensure you get home safely.
