Components of a transport program can be divided into two general categories: medical and nonmedical components. 9 The medical components include medical personnel, equipment, and supplies. The nonmedical components include transportation, communications, billing, and marketing. A physician with training and expertise in pediatric intensive care or pediatric emergency medicine should supervise the medical components of a pediatric transport program. While this individual assumes overall responsibility for the program, many management decisions may be shared with or delegated to a nurse manager or other professional. Because of the time constraints on medical professionals and their usual lack of administrative expertise, the responsibility for direction of the nonmedical components of the program is often best assumed by a member of the hospital administration.
