Background: The Functional Status Score for the Intensive Care Unit (FSS-ICU) is a valid and reliable instrument to measure physical functioning in the intensive care unit setting. Translation and cross-cultural adaptation in Chile has not been published for the FSS-ICU. Aim: To translate and cross-culturally adapt all associated documents of the original FSS-ICU for Chile. Method: The Spanish version of FSS-ICU, available at, was used as the starting point. This version was previously translated, with the original FSS-ICU developers, following established guidelines for this process. The Chilean pocket card version was newly developed based on the English version at Cognitive interviews were conducted for the adaptation of the FSS-ICU and pocket card version to assess understanding of relevant stakeholders (i.e., Chilean intensive care unit physiotherapists). Adaptations to the translation were made when agreement among the physiotherapists was less than 80%. Results: Cognitive interviews of the Chilean FSS-ICU (85 items) and pocket card version (18 items) were performed with 30 Chilean physiotherapists from 18 hospitals (14 public and 4 private). During the interviews, modest adaptations mainly made in the general guidelines and specific instructions for three items of the FSS-ICU and two items of the pocket card. Finally, the frequently asked questions, pocket card and full version of the FSS-ICU were developed. The original developers accepted all adaptations. Conclusions: The Chilean version of the FSS-ICU was easy to understand by the physiotherapists. The FSS-ICU is freely available for non-commercial clinical and research use by Chilean Spanish-speakers.

BACKGROUND: The use of measurement instruments has become a major issue in physical therapy, but their use in daily practice is rare. The aim of this paper is to describe adherence to standardized assessments by physical therapists using a complexity-based model for categorizing rehabilitation (CMCR) at the Clínica Alemana of Santiago, an acute hospital in Chile. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study used 145,968 participant records that were stored in the inpatient database between July 2011 and December 2015. Adherence to the CMCR by 31 physical therapists working with intensive care unit (ICU) and non-ICU inpatients was assessed every quarter using the electronic patient records (EPR). This instrument (CMCR) linked clinical functional assessment to the degree of severity, thereby setting a score used to categorize patients as low, medium and high complexity. 96,400 instances of inpatient care where the physician recommended physical therapy were categorized. This was from a total of 145,968 instances of inpatient care recorded throughout the duration of the study (17 quarters). Trends in adherence were analyzed using a Prais-Winsten regression (a first-order autoregressive model). The trends were compared using a repeated measures ANOVA for mixed models with a significance level of 0.05. The use of the CMCR was included as one of the organization's quality indicators associated with the hospital's accreditation processes. RESULTS: Adherence increased by 1.48% every quarter (p = 0.005) for both ICU and non-ICU patients. On average, adherence with ICU patients was 16.98% greater than with non-ICU patients. Although adherence was always greater with ICU patients, the rate of increase with non-ICU patients was significantly greater: 1.62% (p = 0.007) vs. 1.28% (p = 0.003), respectively. CONCLUSION: The CMCR facilitated adherence to standardized assessments by physical therapists working with ICU and non-ICU inpatients in an acute hospital, while linking this instrument to the organization's quality management process proved to be an effective strategy for the duration of this study (17 quarters).
