Sure, but you run into a liability issue.. very quickly.

I don't remember the specifics, but I presume she isn't in a hospital or care facility right now, because if she was, they would arrange transportation. Immortal, you say she has to stay in the gurney. Does that mean she has to stay supine? Prone? is she not allowed to sit up?

Seriously, take him up on this offer!

How many times will you get the chance to drive with a siren on your vehicle instead of on the one chasing you?

She is currently at a nursing home/physical therapy place. Today they tried to get her into a wheelchair, but her broken leg was just too painful. They have a transport van intended for a wheel chair. So we were told she needs an ambulance to transport my mil

Can you brace the leg up to keep it straight? Many chairs will elevate the leg. Can you load her up on pain pills for the short duration? Figure the difference between an ambulance ride and transport van is that she is sitting up vs laying down. IMO, very small when not in an ALS situation, which this isn't.

If it was my folks, and I had access to a transport van, wheelchair with elevation, support, feed pain pills 5 min before attempting the move. On the flip side, i've literately transported, in an ALS rig a guy with a sprained thumb so...

Side note. all ambulances in my county are ALS (advanced life support) rigs. Now, with where you are at, call AMR, LIFE, or any of the other services, and price check for a BLS (Basic Life Support) transfer. They may be able to give you a better idea of what is available you in your location.

No problem, and good luck. Curious, what company did you go with, and are they making you pay up front? Whats a rig go for for a transport down there?
