Domestic Commercial Medical Escort (CME) is the use of various modes of commercially available public transportation such as domestic airlines, Amtrak trains or chartered motor vehicles for the purpose of patient transport accompanied by a medical attendant for destinations within the United States. Most commonly this involves a stable patient with an injury or illness unlikely to deteriorate during transport, accompanied by a nurse or paramedic flying first or business class on a major US airline. As described in the quick reference guide, the suitable patient should have some degree of mobility and be able to sit upright for an extended period of time. All arrangements of the transport from sending to receiving facility or the patient’s home are made by our flight coordinators.
