ECIP Intensive Support Week
A week of ECIP activity starts today and first up was Steve Christian with a presentation around the SAFER patient flow bundle and Red to Green Days.
The pdf presentation (1.79 MB) sets out the journey from Red to Green Days.
A Green Day is a day when then patient has received an intervention that supports their journey through to discharge.
Examples of what could constitute a Green Day:
Formal review by the medical team, with clinical management plan being devised
Therapy assessment or intervention
A diagnostic intervention that supports the progress of the patient through their episode of care
A Green day is a day when all that is planned or requested happened on the day it is requested, equalling a positive experience for the patient.
A Red day is when the patients not receive an intervention to support their pathways of care through to discharge.
Examples of what constitutes a Red Day:
- A planned diagnostics is not undertaken as requested
- If planned therapy intervention does not occur
- There is no senior clinical review ~ Monday to Friday
- Medical management plans are not reflective of interventions and required outcomes to progress the patient’s pathway of care
