Early progressive mobility has been linked to the prevention of falls, pressure injuries, VTE, VAE, delirium, CAUTI, readmissions and improves worker safety. Establishing a mobility protocol that can be easily implemented by nursing staff is beneficial for improving patient outcomes and recovery.
FHA Mission to Care HIIN is hosting a free webinar for member hospitals on Jun. 11, Sharing Successes: Implementation of a Mobility Team. During this webinar, Leslie Pollart, Director of Nursing for Memorial Regional Hospital, will discuss the structure and success of Memorial Healthcare System's Mobility Team including their implementation strategies, operational information and return on investment methodology and results. Attendees can look forward to a very information session with time allotted for Q&A and interactive discussion.
Multi-disciplinary team attendance is suggested. We encourage hospitals to invite any team member in nursing, rehabilitation, physical therapy, pharmacy, case management and quality; and DO NOT forget to include clinical technicians who will be critical to the success of any mobility and safe patient handling program.
