patient transporting direction

  1. I am searching information of patient transportation in hospitals.

    In different countries there are different habits of transporting patients.
    Patients can be transported head first or foots first. Some countries they
    don't have difference of transporting direction, some do.

    I need badly information from European countries such as Sweden, Norway,
    Denmark, Germanny, France, England, Nederlands, Austria, Sweiz, Italy ...
    and eastern european countries.

    Would You be so kind and tell me Your profession, your country and your
    knowledge of
    transporting directions in our country.

    I am specially interested in reasons why transporting direction if that it
    is.
