Danny Young (Physical Therapy) co-authored an editorial titled “Inpatient Mobility Technicians: One Step Forward?” that addresses a current study focused on the feasibility and effectiveness of dedicated mobility technicians who encourage out-of-bed activities such as walking among older hospital patients. Previous study findings indicate that inpatient mobility predicts post-hospital patient disposition and contributes to positive outcomes after discharge. The editorial appeared in the February issue of Journal of Hospital Medicine.
