Organ Recipient Flight Information Form
What is Pre-plan?
The organ transplant “Pre-Plan” service is for patients awaiting organ transplants. The Pre-Plan service will benefit patients who are in need of a fast flight to the organ transplant location that is out of their home state. By pre-registering with AeroCare ahead of time the patient’s pertinent information is stored within AeroCare’s patient database.
Because organs can become available at any time and patients are given a small window of time to be at the location of the transplant the pre-plan is a huge time saver for the organ recipient.
How Does It Work?
Once the call comes into a patient from their doctor that an organ is available, the patient would immediately contact AeroCare and indicate they are enrolled in the pre-plan. At that moment AeroCare activates the patient's plan. An AeroCare Learjet air ambulance stands by at the pre-determined airport ready to lift off as soon as the pre-plan patient arrives at the airport. The fast Learjet flies the patient to the location of the organ. Upon arrival at the organ’s location, the patient is driven to the hospital in an emergency vehicle with lights and sirens. The precious time the pre-plan service saves an organ transplant recipient is invaluable.
