Hip Fracture Patient – Admission to Surgery
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost 260,000 people over the age of 65 are admitted to the hospital with a hip fracture. It is critical to get the patient medically cleared for surgery as quickly and as safely as possible. In today’s audio cast you will hear Jason Pry, Consultant and Jenna Desormier, Senior Product Lead for Accelero Health Partners discuss hip fracture care from admission to surgery.
They will be discussing three key areas:
- Medically preparing the patient for surgery
- Managing pain in the early stages post-fracture
- Effectively delivering patient and family education
