PURPOSE: Medical intensive care unit (MICU) survivors often manifest significant impairments in physical function and diminished quality of life. Early mobilization (EM) programs have resulted in improved outcomes and wide spread implementation has been recommended by several professional societies. However, barriers to implementation are common and the need for increased resources is often chief among them. With this obstacle in mind, we implemented an EM program in our MICU as part of a quality improvement project.
