Pathway Objectives

To facilitate rehabilitation and recovery of post ICU patients (mechanically ventilated for COVID-19) through their journey to recovery (ICU-to-unit-to-home).

Timeline: Prior to discharge from ICU daily for 14 days in hospital (on the unit/ward); at home weekly until week 12 post discharge from hospital

Circle of Care – Patient & Care Team

Recovery Coordinator, Nurse, Physician, Respiratory Therapist, Occupational Therapist, In-home care provider


Eligible ICU patients (on mechanical vent 3+ days, stable, conscious, not palliative, able to participate in their recovery) are enrolled by ICU staff into the program

Recovery goals (short, medium, long-term) are identified by the patient and barriers to attaining these goals are uncovered – Goals are based on Goal Attainment Scaling (GAS)

Patient is triaged based on goal attainment, as goals are achieved new goals are set this is done collaboratively between the patient and Recovery Coordinator

Patients are followed weekly by the recovery coordinator until 12 weeks post discharge where an in-person visit is scheduled at the ICU recovery clinic

Appropriate education, resources (physical, psychological, cognitive, and social aspects of ICU recovery), care plan, community resources, specialist recovery websites etc. are tailored to the patient’s unique barriers to recovery
