SAFER Patient Flow at CUH27 May 2018
As part of Project Flow 2018 in Cork University Hospital, a plan was put in place to implement the SAFER patient flow bundle on all in-patient wards in the hospital.
Today, 28th May 2018, marks the launch of our Cork University Hospital Staff educational video about the SAFER patient flow bundle.
The SAFER patient flow bundle encompasses 5 elements to improve patient flow:
S - Senior Review in the morning
A - All patients should have a Planned Date for Discharge
F - Flow should happen early in the day from the Emergency Department and assessment units
E - Early discharge is aimed for, before 11am
R - Review of patients who are risk of prolonged stay should occur on a daily basis
We wish to thank the staff members who have contributed to making this informative video and all staff members in the hospital who are continually committed to improving patient flow.
Flow is a team sport!
