An ambulance transfusion service is defined as an ambulance service certified by the Department of Health that administers blood components during transport from one hospital to another hospital. Section 58-2.20 of Title10 of the New York State Codes, Rules and Regulations (NYCRR) requires ambulance transfusion services to have a written agreement with each hospital issuing blood components to the ambulance service for possible administration during transport to another hospital.

There are two ways to apply for approval as an ambulance transfusion service. Each ambulance service may apply individually or the Emergency Medical Service Program Agency may apply for multiple ambulance transfusion service approvals for those ambulance services within the EMSPA service area.
