Duke MOVES BMAT (Bedside Mobility Assessment Tool)

BMAT (Bedside Mobility Assessment Tool)

The BMAT is a tool designed for nurses to assess patient mobility in acute care.  The BMAT allows nurses (and other healthcare workers) to determine the appropriate patient handling and mobility equipment or device to safely move or mobilize the patient.

(We would like to acknowledge and thank Banner Health in Colorado for developing, validating and sharing the original tool.)
