A Practical Approach to Mobility in the Intensive Care Unit

White Paper – May 12, 2017

A Practical Approach to Mobility in the Intensive Care Unit

Exploring Low Tech, Low Cost, High Compliance, High Reliability Opportunities

Today’s critically ill patients are often sicker, heavier, more complex and at risk for the hazards of immobility. Experts explain that the hazards of immobility adversely impact long-term recovery from a critical illness. Acute care facilities across the US and globally are seeking innovative practices to address these hazards in a cost-effective manner that yields high worker compliance, and better short- and long-term patient outcomes. This White Paper highlights relevant research, and features findings from a pilot study conducted by Covenant Medical Center, a Covenant Health facility, in Lubbock Texas.1 Covenant Medical Center, a 551 bed regional medical center serves west Texas and eastern New Mexico, and is associated with Lubbock University and Texas Tech University. The pilot offers an understanding of mobility in the ICU through both quantitative (Surveys) and qualitative (Interviews) methodologies. Data is included in this paper where appropriate.

Meet the humans of human care.

I'm no different from you. I might be older, less agile. My legs are slow but my mind is quick. I have a career. Or maybe I've had one. Either way I'm not slowing down. I can keep up. But some things don't come easy anymore. Small things, and some big ones. Appearance matters, I'm still vain. I'm still happy. I know I need some help, even more than just a little. I don't mind as long as it works. But hey, it is what it is.
