Our article focuses on a retrospective analysis of the occurrence of accidents relating to 20 years of activity of Neonatal Emergency Transport Service (NETS) in Liguria region, Italy. The objective of this study is to determine the vehicle accident rate for a specialized emergency medical services-NETS transport system between 1995 and 2015. We reviewed 5035 medical records related to the activity of our NETS from its beginning, in February 1995 to June 2015. We identified the occurrence of three road accidents (rate ∼1 : 1600 transports; 1 : 170 000 driven km), no helicopter accidents and only one technical problem during helicopter use; our service was not involved in any crashes resulting in injury. We discussed some reasons possibly explaining these good results.
