Nurse Escort For seriously ill or injured patients who have to travel by air, nurse escort is a rule and not an exception. A flight nurse, who will not just accompany the ill or injured patient, but also tend to every medical need of the patient on board, will discount the possibility of any unpleasant situation arising out of any medical emergency. It does not matter if the patient is ambulatory or non-ambulatory; if the doctor says that the patient needs a nurse on board, there's no way you would take a chance with the life of the patient. This is because going against the medical advice would neither help your patient nor present you in a good light before your loved ones.
