In an effort to increase bedside nursing engagement, a nursing-led rounding model that also covers a number of quality metrics and elements of the ABCDEF bundle was recently instituted with great success and is being explored as a potential model for other ICUs within the enterprise. The effects of early mobility on patient outcomes, as well as other research protocols are active in our NICU. We also help support the mobile stroke treatment unit (MSTU - second in the nation and first in Ohio) and all patients transported in the MSTU are admitted directly to the NICU where decisions regarding acute treatment are subsequently made. As the Cleveland Clinic enterprise grows as a national and international leader in medical care, our mission expands to provide support. Currently, graduates from our fellowship have successfully established dedicated neuro-ICU programs at Cleveland Clinic Akron General and Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi. Early stages of collaboration with both ICUs have already begun. 34
