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
