The #everyBODYmoves campaign is a grassroots effort that aims to address immobility harm in the acute hospital and post-acute setting. Our goal is to develop a forum for clinicians and organizations to share best practice that nurses, therapists and medical colleagues can embrace.
Make #everyBODYmoves Yours
Download resources to help you foster the culture of mobility in your institution. We offer several mobility evaluation tools and informational flyers that can be printed as large as a poster size or used digitally as screen savers or slideshows. These resources are available for download and use under a creative commons license.
Bed Rest is Bad
Why Bed Rest is Bad
Did your patient get out of bed today?
Did your patient walk around the room today?
Did your patient MOVE today?
