UP Campaign and Early Mobility

The UP Campaign from the Health Research and Educational Trust (HRET) HIIN provides structure and recommendations for cross-cutting strategies to improve patient care and patient safety while enhancing frontline staff engagement and decreasing the tendency to work in siloes. Visit the HRET HIIN website to learn more.

This cross-topic approach to harm reduction currently focuses on four components:

  • Wake UP  –  Opioid and Sedation Management
  • Get UP  –  Early progressive mobility
  • Soap UP  –  Hand Hygiene
  • Script UP  –  Inpatient Medication Management

The UP Campaign is structured to generate momentum, increase impact and simplify patient safety initiatives. Implementing the UP Campaign can decrease patient harm in the following areas:

  • Adverse Drug Events
  • Airway Safety
  • Delirium
  • Failure to Rescue
  • Patient Falls
  • Venous Thromoemboli
  • Ventilator Associated Events
  • Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections
  • Delirium
  • Patient Falls
  • Pressure Injuries
  • Readmissions
  • Venous Thromboemboli
  • Ventilator Associated Events
  • Clostridium difficile Infections
  • Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections
  • Central Line Associated Blood Infections
  • Multi-drug Resistant Organisms
  • Sepsis
  • Surgical Site Infections
  • Ventilator Associated Events
  • Adverse Drug Events
  • Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infections
  • Central Line Associated Blood Stream Infections
  • Clostridium difficile Infections
  • Multi-drug Resistant Organisms
  • Patient Falls
  • Readmissions
  • Sepsis
  • Surgical Site Infections
  • Ventilator Associated Events

Early Mobility Resources

CHA Early Mobility Webinar Series Recordings

A three-part webinar series for Colorado and surrounding state hospitals to build skills and knowledge in identifying and minimizing patient harms related to immobility. Bed rest or immobility during hospitalization may lead to adverse patient effects.

  • Critically ill patients on bedrest may experience ventilator-associated pneumonia, hospital acquired pneumonia, delayed weaning of mechanical ventilation due to muscle weakness and the development of pressure injuries (Vollman, Critical Care Nurse, 2010).
  • Patients are estimated to spend over 95% of their time in bed. Placing them at risk of functional decline, medical adverse events and readmissions (Inouye et al., JAMA Internal Medicine, 2017).
