Island Rescue air ambulance is proud to offer a flight physician/critical care flight paramedic crew combination as routine staffing on every shift. We believe this provides the highest caliber of competency and scope of practice possible. In addition, we have highly qualified UK and U.S. flight physicians on call 24/7 to provide consult and a higher level of medical oversight where necessary.
Health care in a mobile, ever changing and demanding environment is very different than in a stable and controlled hospital environment. It takes considerable advanced training and discipline to maintain those qualifications and standards. Our clinical staff have been trained to a higher standard within their specific disciplines and maintain their level of excellence in specific competencies through rigorous ongoing training. For example, our flight physicians are qualified ER MDs but have exceeded that level by specializing in transport medicine and baromedicine. The same principals apply to our flight paramedics and nurses.
