SAFE Emergency Department Speedy - Assessment - Focused - Environment
At Fairfield Medical Center, you deserve to receive fast and efficient care when you come to our Emergency Department. That’s why we are adopting a new model of triage called “vertical care” that is designed to shorten your wait time and connect you with a provider more quickly.
The vertical care model includes a SAFE area, which is a set of rooms similar to an exam room. S.A.F.E. stands for Speedy, Assessment, Focused, Environment and is a process that has been used successfully in many other hospitals.
