Early progressive mobility is essential to optimize outcomes and prevent harm to hospitalized patients. To avoid injury to patients and caregivers, it’s best for health care providers to use safe patient handling techniques and tools while mobilizing patients.
The bedside mobility assessment tool (BMAT) is a validated functional assessment tool used as part of a safe patient handling and mobility program. The BMAT, as part of a comprehensive progressive mobility program can help reduce patient falls, staff injuries and prevent the hazards that come with immobility.
This webinar will review the importance of mobility and use of safe patient handling principles through a development of a comprehensive progression mobility program which incorporates the BMAT.
Registration is free and open to all GLPP HIIN members.
