Supervised Mobility and/or Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)
Supervision during mobility and/or ADLs allows staff to verbally or physically assist a patient to help keep them safe during these tasks. Patients may need help for a variety of reasons: pain, injury, deconditioning, cognitive impairment, medication side effects, etc. Physical and occupational therapists are well-trained in strategies to appropriately assist patients with these tasks and can serve as a resource to other hospital staff for this issue.
