Please pardon cross-posting Have received a request from DVT or VTE prophylaxis team to document the minimum number of steps to adequately mobilize and prevent thrombus formation.....most of our docs are using 50 ft. am finding much on "early mobilization (mobilisation)"..........or "early ambulation"...but nothing definitive in terms of distance or steps. Any chance, any other teams are addressing this issue? Any guidance would be appreciated, and thanks in advance Ellen Richards, M.S., Library Manager Marshall Medical Community Health Library 681 Main St. Suite 103 Placerville, CA 95667 Monday - Friday 9 aM - 4:30 PM [log in to unmask] 530-626-2778 fax: 530-626-2779 www.marshallmedical.org/library.cfm Confidentiality Notice: This email message, including any attachments, is for the sole use of the intended recipient(s) and may obtain confidential and privileged information.
