Independent Review and Evaluation Governing agencies should be assured that there is ongoing review of the EMS system.

Safe transfer is an important concept, and many problems can be avoided if both the transferring and receiving medical facilities develop transfer agreements in advance.

Having appropriate medical personnel accompany the patient ensures medical support during transfer.

In an effort to control health care costs, patients may be discouraged from accessing the EMS system for perceived emergencies.
