  12. 12. SafetySafety Study concluded out of 5300 PT sessions with 50% sitting or higher activity level, there were only 34 potential safety occurrences (89% of them were changes in vital signs). There were no major events such as catheters or trachs removed or MI’s. There were 2 assisted falls and 1 unassisted fall. Only 8 events that needed minimal intervention. Potential area of study as we proceed with our culture of mobility.
