Tricks of the Trade
Call for a safer ambulance.
Tricks of the Trade 1
In its normal position, the attendant’s seat faces forward so the attendant can reach essential small equipment in the angled cabinet—or the monitor, clamp-mounted to its top surface.
Tricks of the Trade 2
The attendant’s seat shown here can slide sideways during transport to make it easier for the attendant to reach the patient. A safety harness could be integrated into the seatback.
Tricks of the Trade 3
During the checklist completion, the seat can be rotated to the left to make it easy for the attendant to check or clean equipment, using the cot as a working shelf.
Tricks of the Trade 4
If you absolutely had to have a bench for a second patient, you could fold the seatback forward and place a board on top of it. The rear lid on the bench could be latched and could still be used for storage.
