This secondary analysis determined the impact of an early progressive mobility protocol implemented in a 22-bed neuro ICU on hospital costs and mechanical ventilation. The original prospective pre-post study showed significant clinical outcomes, including a reduction in ICU and hospital LOS but did not evaluate cost impact. The protocol included 4 mobility milestones, beginning in bed through ambulation. The investigators used Hill-Rom(R) TotalCare® ICU beds. It showed a 30% reduction in overall hospital costs and a 51% reduction in ventilator days.
