SAFER patient flow bundle
The SAFER patient flow bundle blends five elements of best practice. It’s important to implement all five together for cumulative benefits. It works particularly well when used with the ‘Red2Green days’ approach.
The five elements of the SAFER patient flow bundle are:
S – Senior review
A – All patients have an expected discharge date and clinical criteria for discharge
F – Flow
E – Early discharge
R – Review
We all know that sometimes patients spend days in hospital that do not directly contribute toward their discharge. We believe that by working better together we can reduce the number of these ‘red days’ in favour of value-adding ‘green days’.
