Mobile problems? Oceans Drive shuttles to the rescue for the impaired*

It is not uncommon to battle transportation problems in dire medical situations, which, in lots of cases, have cost many people their lives. That’s why they say experience is the best teacher.

Tumi Oluyole once had such an experience, but he never let it slip as he eventually registered Oceans Drive Transportation to effect a change for the better in the medical sector. Reports have it that not less than 3.5 million are unable to keep appointments with medical service providers in the United States because of lack of access to transportation. Also, some patients who are not able to travel alone due to some challenges also contribute to the problems.

With the arrival of Oceans Drive Transportation on the scene, what seems to be a problem is gradually being tackled headlong, says Oluyole, whose mission is to provide solution for efficient NEMT (Non-Emergency Medical Transportation) services by providing quality, dependable, reliable door to door movement of patients through skilled medical transportation specialists. Looking for a consistent NEMT service provider for his visually impaired mother, which opened his eyes to the opportunities in the NEMT sector, Tumi Oluyole, the CEO of Oceans Drive Transportation, went to work by immediately bringing the much-needed change in the sector, thereby positively impacting patients.

“Oceans Drive Transportation provides patients with timely, affordable non-emergency services to and from medical and non-medical appointments. We also provide assisted living facilities, private stays, day programs, and treatment centers across Nebraska, Georgia, and Atlanta. This includes wheelchair transportation and other assisted services for those with physical and cognitive barriers, moving them from their room to the vehicle and vice versa”, he said.

Providing such quality services requires hiring highly-skilled medical transportation specialists trained in handling patients with any medical condition. This the company does on regular basis. The company also trains her workers, especially to raise the standard of Patient/Commute. The training session and vetting procedure includes certification in passenger service and safety, as well as background checks, drug testing, and first-aid, CPR, and defensive driving training.

“Drivers are taught to recognize the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia in individuals, to understand how it affects them, and how to interact with them. Specific protocol is enacted when riding with patients, and as a general safety measure, every vehicle in our fleet is equipped with cameras to monitor patient/driver behavior.

“Clients can avail themselves to our services through phone call or e-mail. After information is provided for pick-up and drop time and destination, the data is logged into our management system. Trips are scheduled with sufficient gaps to allow for unexpected delays and emergencies. Passengers always receive calls from staff 24 hours prior and also on the day of the trip to confirm. They have the opportunity to provide feedback to help improve services”, he noted.

Oceans Drive Transportation goes above and beyond in passenger service as part of its core values of empathy and compassion. This is reflected in the staff’s treatment of patients; Helping them to buckle their seatbelts and carrying them from rooms to the shuttle. On request, patients can bring family members, friends, or others in their support system. Shuttles are available year-round, including throughout the holiday season to help patients connect and socialize with family and friends at a time when non-emergency transportation is difficult to obtain.

“We never cut corners when upholding ethical standards, when it comes to the safety and comfort of our passengers. We continuously alleviate the burden of millions of American, and have a track record in the world of NEMT services,” Tumi added. For more information, please click here
