Sherrie Glasser-Mayrsohn: Physical Therapy Performed in Intensive Care Units Improves Patient Outcomes

Dale M. Needham , M.D., Ph.D., who is the senior author on the study, explains: "The evidence is growing that providing early physical and occupational therapy for intensive care patients—even when they are on life support—leads to better outcomes. Patients are stronger and more able to care for themselves when they are discharged [...] However, our study shows that a relatively low investment up front can produce a significant overall reduction in the costs of hospital care for these patients. Such programs are an example of how we can save money and improve care at the same time."

"Early rehab is shown to decrease the length of time that a patient is required to stay at the hospital," comments Sherrie Glasser-Mayrsohn , physical therapy professional. "One way a physical therapist can assist with helping pati
