Early ambulation is a key concept in surgical recovery and overall improvement of medical conditions. The initiation of Enhanced Recovery programs (ERP) for surgical procedures have used evidence-based research to bundle best practices for a quicker and more effective recovery.
The author evaluated the consistency of early ambulation on a surgical specialties unit using the ERP method. Through process improvement methods, data and practice were evaluated to show inconsistencies in documentation, data report abstraction, and understanding of complete collaborative bundle components.
