Success Measures

Opportunity Identification:

  • Identify ventilator duration, time of admission to first activity, physical therapy referrals, and other key performance indicators for ICU patients.
  • Analyze the relationship between ICU mobility measurements and reported hospital-acquired conditions (HACs).

Process Improvements:

  • Decrease the duration of time from ICU admission to first activity.
  • Increase the maximum distance ambulated while in the ICU.
  • Increase the frequency of physical therapy referrals for ICU patients.

Outcomes Improvement:

  • Decrease ventilator duration for ICU patients.
  • Reduce ICU LOS for all ICU patients.
  • Increase patient satisfaction for ICU patients.
  • Decrease the total number of HACs.
