This is one of several active nursing research studies. If you have interest in collaborating or questions, please email the contact indicated.


The purpose of this study is to compare the outcomes associated with using a full-service mobility program including dedicated mobility staff, proper mobility equipment, and a software data collection tool to complete progressive upright mobility (PUM), which is the current standard of care. It is hypothesized that the use of a dedicated mobility team along with the proper mobility equipment will provide more efficient mobilization and lead to reduced length of stay, reduced ventilator days, fewer complications, fewer catheter days, a more frequent favorable discharge disposition, decreased cost of care, decreased readmissions, improved nursing satisfaction, and decreased caregiver injury rates.
