Redpoint Provides Translation Services for Sick Client

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Redpoint was contacted by a client to help with translation services for her father. While traveling in Italy, her father was admitted to a local hospital and diagnosed with pneumonia. The medical staff spoke little to no English, and the family was growing frustrated by the lack of communication and confusion regarding his treatment. His daughter discussed the situation with Redpoint’s medical team, who was able to provide translation services between the family and the medical facility, and helped clarify the situation, and bring a level of ease to the struggling family.

When traveling internationally, medical facilities will not always have the traveler’s native language-speaking staff, which can be critical for medical diagnosis and treatment. As a Ripcord client, you have access to our 24/7 translation services and medical teams, empowering you to make your own decisions and fully understanding your diagnosis.

Redpoint Evacuates Ripcord Client Home After Stoke

Posted on Posted in Medical Advisory, Medical Evacuation

A Ripcord client was traveling in Portugal when she suffered a stroke. She was immediately taken to a local hospital, where the staff unfortunately had limited English. Redpoint stayed in constant contact with the hospital, doctors, and nursing staff providing translation services to the patient and her family and maintaining constant oversight of all medical decisions; obtaining detailed medical reports and releases regularly.

While the patient recovered, Redpoint continued to provide constant medical oversight, worked with the insurance company to provide and review updated information, and continually checked in with the patient and her family.

She began to improve after transport to Lisbon for additional testing and physical therapy and elected to be medically transferred to the US where she could continue treatment close to home.

Redpoint deployed a paramedic bedside to prepare and organize the transport for her repatriation. Once the patient was prepared for transport and all local logistics were completed, an additional paramedic was sent for the flight home. Bedside to bedside transport was completed and the patient was thrilled to continue her recovery in the more familiar setting.

Redpoint Provides Mid-Trip Medical Consultation

Redpoint Provides Mid-Trip Medical Consultation

A climber in Bolivia contacted Redpoint for medical consultation after climbing for two weeks and developing symptoms that could indicate altitude related illness.

Reaching altitudes as high as 20k, he descended to a safer elevation to seek the advice of Redpoint’s team of medical professionals after discovering he had chills, muscle aches, dry mouth, and digestive issues. He was concerned that his symptoms could be an indicator of a larger issue and was hesitant to continue his planned climbs should his condition worsen.

Redpoint’s medical team reviewed his symptoms and advised him to seek additional tests at a nearby hospital in La Paz.

Within an hour of calling Redpoint, the climber’s fever broke, and he began to feel better. He opted out of further medical attention and continued his climb without issue.

Many people are aware of the value of Ripcord’s evacuation services, but as Ripcord members, travelers have access to 24/7 live medical and security consultation. Often, these services can help travelers decide on the best course of action while away from home and ensure that valuable trip days are not lost.
