This integrated pathway (Red Bag Pathway) is designed to support care homes, ambulance services and the local hospital meet the requirements of NICE guideline NG27: Transition between inpatient hospital setting and community or care homes.

A Red bag is used to transfer standardised paperwork, medication and personal belongings and stays with the resident throughout their hospital episode and is returned home with resident. The standardised paperwork will ensure that everyone involved in the care for the resident will have necessary information about the resident’s general health, e.g. baseline information, current concern, social information and any medications, on discharge the care home will receive a discharge summary with the medications in the red bag.

The pathway enables a significant reduction in the amount of time taken for ambulance transfer times and for A&E assessment times and reduces avoidable hospital admissions.

The Openhouse “Red Bag” is the original as described in NICE guideline NG27: Transition between inpatient hospital setting and community or care homes.

The Vanguard Patient Overnight Bag has been designed using our latest micrAgard wipe clean fabric with an inner silver micAgard lining. micrAgard gives the product a high quality, hard wearing and durable feel with top grab handles for ease of carrying.

  • Clear business card sized window for a patient name card.
  • Clear document sleeve on the rear for patient report form.
  • Consecutively numbered for easy identification and security.

Zip: Openhouse Standard Gun Metal Grey Zip with No. 10 chain and sliders.
Piping: Gun Metal Grey PVC Piping.

This is our standard piping that is used across all of our products. It adds strength and structure as well as protection to items contained within the bag.

    A Hello! All UK manufactured bags come with a standard 12 month warranty, however they have been known to last much longer than that with many bags known to be in active use after ten years. Thanks for asking and let us know if you need additional information.

    Answered by the admin Hi, Standard text printing similar to that as shown in the product image is included in the price (subject to a character limit), If a logo is required we can often do this in house if a high resolution image is provided, although this may incur an origination charge.

    Answered by the admin Hello, Thank you for your question, we are checking with the fabric manufacturer, as standard we would just recommend warm soap and water to scrub away the soiling. The material is treated to be antimicrobial and repel any blood borne pathogens .
