The Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM) Intensive Care Unit (ICU) Liberation Bundle was created to reduce the harmful effects of events that occur in the ICU setting. Early mobility and exercise is part “E” of the ICU Liberation Bundle; goals are to reduce ICU and hospital length of stay (LOS), prevent readmissions, reduce discharges to long term care facilities, reduce delirium and coma days, and reduce likelihood of hospital mortality (SCCM, 2021)
