The SAFER Matrix provides one, comprehensive visual representation of survey findings in which all Requirements for Improvement (RFIs) are plotted on the SAFER Matrix according to the likelihood of the issue to cause harm to patients, staff or visitors, in addition to how widespread the problem is, based on the surveyors’ observations.

The SAFER Matrix allows surveyors to perform real-time, on-site evaluations of deficiencies. Placement of RFIs within the matrix determines the level of detail required within each RFI’s Evidence of Standards Compliance (ESC) follow-up.
