Mobility in the hospital: faster recovery, lower costs [infographic]
Posted: May 22, 2015

Early movement for critically ill patients means a shorter stay in the intensive care unit and in the hospital overall. Early mobilization also results in a greater likelihood that patients are discharged to their homes rather than to another care facility. If you have a loved one in the hospital, ask your nurse and doctor about making movement part of their care. Programs like Hill-Rom’s Progressive Mobility can provide hospitals the practical tools they need to get patients moving.
