Have you jumped on the early mobility bandwagon? Early, progressive mobility is delivering unprecedented positive patient AND hospital outcomes making the intervention a "must do" for hospitals wanting to accelerate harm reduction. Join the November 16th 2017 GET UP virtual event: Early Mobility Matters: In & Out of the ICU, to learn from DR. Dale Needham, a pioneer in ICU rehabilitation, who will synthesize the latest evidence on the safety and benefits of early mobility in the ICU and share a case study from the John Hopkins MICU. We will then turn to med-surg to highlight a physical therapy led, house wide, ambulation program from Franciscan Health Michigan City, IN. Tune in to learn how these two hospitals used mobility to reduce length of stay and hospital acquired conditions and increased the quality of life for the patients receiving the services post discharge.
