For many event management companies, one of the most difficult, if not the most important, decisions they have to make is which event medical service to choose for their events. Simply taking the first pick of the Google search results might be easy enough, it isn’t the proper way to select a service as important as this. So how do you choose the right event medical service for your needs and what should you look for?
When choosing a medical provider company to provide first aid or other medical attention to event attendees, here are some important things to look for:
What To Look For In An Event Medical Service
Trained Professionals- whether it is just a mild injury or illness, or an event attendee needs emergent care, you want someone who is trained and knowledgeable and who can assess the situation and provide the proper medical care needed. Trained professionals can make a big difference to the safety of your attendees.
Lower Hospital Referral Rate- some event medical service providers will have much lower hospital referral rate than others and this is very important to the success of your event. Unneeded hospitalisations could cost you money, even after already paying for professional medical personnel for your event. Choose an event medical company that employs highly trained and certified medical professionals, including doctors, nurses and paramedics, as they can provide better care and can prescribe medications, whereas first aiders cannot.
Professionalism- when you have a team of trained nurses and paramedics on duty at your event, it will add a higher level of professionalism. This can give your event attendees greater assurance knowing that professional medical care is available should they need it.
Price- while price shouldn’t always be a deciding factor in which event medical service you choose, you do still need to stay within your budget for your event to be a success. Using an event medical service such as EMC will save you money. Event Medicine Company uses nurses and paramedics which means that you don’t have to pay VAT fees which you do pay when you use first aiders.
