The SAFER Patient Flow Bundle

The SAFER bundle blends five elements of best practice. 

It’s important to implement all five elements together to achieve cumulative benefits. 

It works particularly well when it is used in conjunction with the ‘Red and Green Days’ approach. 

When followed consistently, length of stay reduces and patient flow and safety improves.
