    Emergency room trip.

    Pax comes out leading his mother who is moving very slowly and gingerly. She gets in car slowly and I start the ride going to the Hospital Emergency Room. She thinks she may have broken her leg but does not want an ambulance. As I am driving I start to worry if I should or should not help...

    Wall Street Journal Reporter looking for DC drivers who have taken pax to ER

    Hi all, I'm a WSJ journalist doing an in-depth look at why people are using rideshare like Uber and Lyft to get to the Emergency Room. I'm focusing on the DC-metro area and looking for driver experiences. I was curious if any of you had driven distressed or injured pax and would be interested...

    I didn’t realize the situation for either until we were well on our way.

    I had one that was in a very big hurry to get to the emergency room because her son had been taken there by ambulance. This was during a snow storm and she had called a taxi, but was told it would be an hour or two. Her first Uber driver got stuck trying to get to her. I have all wheel drive...

    Emergency room trip.

    That's a gut call. If you go by the book then yes you would request she call an ambulance. I personally probably would have took her because I don't know her situation & I have a big heart for those in need like that.

    Emergency Room.... CANCEL, ARE THEY SERIOUS????

    Tonight was pretty sluggish and then on my way back to Denver from Castle Pines, about 1 am... I get a PING and I accept, maybe it's a PAX going home from a Booty Call or ??? I dunno, Highlands Ranch it's probably at least a 10 mile to wherever... and I get a message from PAX, TWO WORDS...

    I didn’t realize the situation for either until we were well on our way.

    Two examples: Pax comes out leading his mother who is moving very slowly and gingerly. She gets in car slowly and I start the ride going to the Hospital Emergency Room. She thinks she may have broken her leg but does not want an ambulance. As I am driving I start to worry if I should or should...

    Can't get to my car? NOT MY PROBLEM.

    No, no it won't. Because I will be responsible enough to know that Uber is not the correct Service level for my needs. I also will never take an Uber instead of an ambulance when I am need of emergency room level care, say for an on going heart attack, and rapid transport. 1557228732 Yup...

    So now I’m an ambulance?

    People are not stupid. If the man needed an ambulance one would have been called. The natural order of life governs such matters. Stupid people don't have successful tile warehouses with employees, The guy needed a taxi and a taxi he got. Apparently this whole thread is nothing but wealthy...

    So now I’m an ambulance?

    You're joking....right? Because rideshare exists to drive healthy person from Point A to Point B. "Crush Injury" is not part of the equation. Neither is labor, a broken leg, a heart attack, a stroke, or severed limb. I don't know about the Uber Terms of Service you agreed to, but it's...

    So now I’m an ambulance?

    Then there are these... https://www.webmd.com/health-insurance/news/20170515/uber-lyft-er-trips#1 “So instead of waking anybody up, and waking up our 18-month-olds, having all of us go to the hospital, I just said to my husband, I’ll Uber to the hospital,” says Marshall. “At that point, I...

    If PAX gets sick- wait for ambulance or drive to hospital?

    If a PAX falls ill or passes out during the ride, should you pull over, call 911 and wait for the ambulance...or google the nearest emergency room and head on over? What does Uber policy state regarding that? What about insurance and legal liability? What would you do/ should you do?

    Move Over Ambulances, Uber’s Coming

    Seriously, if somebody is experiencing a heart attack, the risk of dying is lower if you are transported by ambulance, because you are stabilized during transport and admitted immediately into care upon arrival to the hospital. If you arrive to the emergency room in an Uber or some other form of...

    So now I’m an ambulance?

    Not gonna lie. If I needed to get myself to the ER and couldn't drive, I would probably call an Uber. Maybe Lyft if I really wasn't thinking straight. But I aint calling an ambulance unless I can't get myself into an Uber. And it's not really about the money. I have pretty good insurance that...

    Uber Promoting Use Of The Service For Medical Transport e.g. Pregnant Women For Childbirth

    The incidence cases may not be that high now, though I would argue that they are given the numbers from that article I linked yesterday, and the practice of ordering uber over an ambulance is on the increase. As the article I linked yesterday indicated they expect people to increasingly order...

    So now I’m an ambulance?

    Exactly. Hell my best single ride to date came from picking up an XL from the Emergency room at 330AM.

    Medical Transport Apps

    When I was getting my first undergrad, I remember a buddy of mine drank too much, and stopped breathing. Someone dialed 911, and the ambulance came and picked him up. We lived next door to a hospital with an Emergency Room. Door to door, call it 60, maybe 70 yards directly. Maybe 150, if you...

    Uber is A JOKE

    Why take them clear across the city to a hospital? If it's not life or dearh enough take an ambulance, you should have dumped her ass at an immediate care center. there are several on Milwaukee. They cost about a third of an emergency room visit.

    Ever driven someone to the emergency room?

    Common sense will tell you that anyone who uses Uber instead of an ambulance either has no insurance or is not in an emergency situation. People who go to the emergency room instead of a Urgent Care type of facility have no money and/or no insurance. Uber is a catalyst for the poor. Your pax...
