If you have to ask you probably don't have the requisite knowledge and experience in the industry to make a go of it without huge issues.

In my personal experience, don't. I worked for a company and became very politically involved. I no longer work with them, and are in claims court with them over some employment issues. The non-urgent patient transfer business is NOT regulated by the Ontario Ministry of Health like the hospitals, Paramedical service etc. there fore leaving a large unfilled gap in policies and procedures, and you'll see a lot of companies cut corners to save cost. Its not a stable business to get into, because of the corners your able cut, put the health of the patient at grater risk (infection, injury etc.) Non urgent transfer companies dont make enough money to purchase new ambulances and equipment and resort to decommissioned vehicles. Last time i checked they were decommissioned for a reason. I can go for days on the topic. but i hope to shed some light on your subject.


Cheers

My current workplace of non-emergency pt transfer isn't bad. The owner worked for another company or two and decided to start his own. Most of our vehicles are brand new, and he regrets purchasing a used vehicle or two to start his business as they cause more issue than they're worth.

We get new vehicles and new stretchers as old ones have a good reason for being sold.
