If there is a crash.
The bird is not really fasten to any thing.
Wouldn't it just slam up against the cage and probably die?
Yep, that's the idea. If the crash was severe enough to slam the bird hard enough to kill it then you need to worry about packaging the patient. If the bird is sitting there looking at you in its cage and singing a little birdie tune then you tell the driver that you are not a taxi service and then get back in service for someone who really needs help.
It's a rant. it's not serious. The OP obviously had a crappy shift and dealt with a bunch of 911 system abusers before posting. I know the feeling well.
