UP Campaign

Up CampaignFront-line staff are implementing multiple worthy approaches to reduce harm and improve care, which can make it difficult to prioritize and execute interventions. With ever-increasing numbers of safe practices to implement, clinicians may become overwhelmed with new tasks and responsibilities. Clinician burnout levels are increasing due to greater demands and rapid changes in workflow. Mistakes could be made simply trying to comply with new practices, demands and expectations.

The HRET HIIN UP Campaign is designed to simplify safe care and streamline interventions, reduce multiple forms of harm with simple easy-to-accomplish activities, and consolidate basic interventions that cut across several topics to decrease harm. The UP Campaign is made up of 3 components:

  • WAKE-UP — Reducing unnecessary sleepiness and sedation.
  • GET-UP — Mobilizing patients to return to function more quickly.
  • SOAP-UP — Implementing appropriate hand hygiene to reduce the spread of infection.
