Skiing Accident in the United States
A skiing accident left a young woman with a broken leg, broken collar, and a broken jaw. MEDEX was called to help arrange for the woman to return to her home on the other side of the country. MEDEX reviewed the case, made sure the patient was fit to fly, and began making commercial flight arrangements for her to return home. Soon, the woman was able to receive treatment from the comfort of her own home.
