Not sure, but I doubt there is any differentiation between day and night for a flight like that, usually only weather. They should be well prepared to fly in the dark. Also, there are certain protocols that are followed by first responders called "quality of life". Nobody is going to die from a severed thumb, etc, but if a timely flight is the only way reattaching an appendage is possible, air is called. I don't make the rules.
