About the Program: 

Hospitalized patients spend most of their day in bed. Immobility can lead to many negative patient outcomes such as increased length of stay, falls, pressure ulcers, hospital acquired infections etc. This can be costly to an organization and affect patient satisfaction. Shifting to a culture of mobility can be challenging due to staffing levels, attitudes towards mobility, lack of equipment, patient motivation factors, etc. Attend this webinar and learn how a level 1 trauma center utilized the model for improvement to begin to shift to a culture of mobility. Their program includes peer leaders on each unit, a multidisciplinary work group and Mobility Aides. Since inception of the mobility aide pilot program, ambulation has increased by 287% on the pilot unit and the organization is now working to spread this program hospital wide.
