Sometimes inpatients with limited transportation have to wait a long time after discharge for a ride home. That's why CAMC started the CAMC Uber, or CUber, service in December 2018.
CUber is available from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily to help transport discharged patients at no cost to the patient.
To use CUber, the patient must meet the following criteria:
Staff should use the ambulance request order in Cerner and make a note in the comments that the request is for CAMC Uber. Refer to the SBAR sent in Manager Weekly Dec. 9 for details.
Aside from being a helpful benefit to the patient, the service is also a tool to help nursing units with the flow of discharged patients and free up HealthTeam's ambulances for more emergent transports.
