AC FFC Tidbit of the Week for February 7, 2021: Make Mobility a Priority

This week we’re highlighting an essential reminder shared with us by the Penn State College of Nursing about the dangers of immobility during hospital stays. Even if a patient is unable to walk, there are still things you can do to maximize their mobility and reduce the risk of decreased muscle mass (which can lead to falls once they are back home), pressure sores and contractures. Please talk about this with your staff and encourage them to continue making mobility a priority for patients—it’s a team effort!
