Medical/Surgical ICU Reduces Length of Stay by 16%, Total Ventilator Days by 20%, and Saves an Estimated $508,000
Hillrom | 2017

A Clinical Nurse Specialist and a joint nursing and physical therapy team decided to improve patient outcomes by targeting functional decline in the medical/surgical intensive care unit (ICU). They utilized the Progressive Mobility® Program and
implemented it using existing Hill‑Rom® Progressa® ICU beds. A 3-month pre- and post-quality improvement study was conducted, and the Impact Tracker™ Quality Improvement Program was used to measure clinical outcomes. ICU length of
stay (LOS) was reduced by 16%, total number of days patients were receiving mechanical ventilation support was reduced by 20%. By comparing projected baseline period with intervention period spending on clinical conditions, the hospital
saved an estimated $508,000.
