Early mobility in a neurocritical ICU has shown positive clinical outcomes. This study examines the sustainability and financial outcomes associated with an early mobility program. The authors from UF Health-Shands Hospital, were able to maintain improvements in ICU and hospital length of stay (LOS), which yielded a 13% reduction in cost of patient care. The authors have estimated a combined savings of $12.4 million dollars over a two year time period. They conclude that early mobility programs are able to be implemented and sustained with positive clinical and financial outcomes.
