Evacuation

> Uncategorized > 9th Feb 2018

We evacuated a patient this morning from a South African game reserve. The patient’s leg was severely injured after being pinned between two cars. The patient had severe bleeding and fractured bones. Our on site medical response team was able to stabilize the patient in conjunction with our doctor on call. The incident management centre secured and facilitated the evacuation via helicopter. The helicopters swift response was only possible due to the employer having their Workers Compensation (WCA) Registration number with them allowing for prompt authorization from the Department of Labour. Always ensure that you have your WCA 99… Number on file and readily available in order to ensure prompt responses.

We convey our shock and sadness at the loss of the fallen heroes that were onboard Netcare 1 (Emergency Medical Helicopter) this afternoon when the helicopter crashed near Bergville, KwaZulu-Natal.

The incident tragically claimed the lives of all that were on board - a NAC pilot, Netcare911 paramedic and a specialised cardiac team from Milpark Hospital that was part of the ECMO Intensive Care Rapid Transfer Team. They were enroute to collect and transfer a critically ill patient to Johannesburg for urgent and specialised care.

The Africa SAFE-T team joins the Netcare Group in standing in silence as we bow our heads in tribute and respect, for the fallen healthcare heroes.

Netcare 1 and her crew have supported our Africa SAFE-T teams in Hoedspruit, Sabi Sand Wildtuin and Madikwe Game Reserve many times over the years by providing rapid air ambulance transport of critical patients to medical facilities in Johannesburg.
They saves many lives across the country.

Our deepest sympathies are with the families and loved ones of our deceased colleagues aboard Netcare 1, and the entire Netcare family.

Another successful air evacuation by the Africa SAFE-T team. The Safari and Adventure Focused Emergency Team identified the rapid need to get the critical patient to a specialized hospital where a team of neuro specialists will await the patients arrival. #africasafe-t #safariandadventurefocusedemergencyteam #emergencymedicine #remotemedicine #wildernessmedicine #wildernessrescue #RemoteRescue #aeromedicalevacuation #HEMS #protectreputations #addvalue
