Transportation of complex patients is an important part of our mandate. However, providing safe, quality transport to the bariatric population can be challenging for Ornge in some instances because of operational limitations in our equipment and vehicles.

We've uploaded our updated protocols on the transportation of bariatric patients to help:

  1. explain how Ornge plans for safe transport of bariatric patients, including our operational limitations; and
  2. provide guidance for health care partners, including a checklist for sending facilities

Ornge is committed to safely minimizing service gaps to this patient population. Please download the full PDF document or visit the Booking a Patient Transport page for various versions.
