In this issue: Patient mobility has been linked to improved patient outcomes. Despite the benefits of mobility, issues related to bed rest and immobility exist among health care systems. Authors provide a framework for implementing a mobility program, known as the Johns Hopkins Activity and Mobility Promotion (JH-AMP) program. Recommendations are provided for each component of the program to facilitate implementation at other institutions.
Clinicians implemented a multifaceted hypoglycemia prevention bundle, including patient and staff education, coordination between meal delivery and insulin coverage, and a hypoglycemia protocol. Hypoglycemia events significantly decreased from 26.78 to 10.27 per 1000 patient days, p<.001. Their results showed that a bundled approach can improve management of hypoglycemia.
