Initial Discussion Post:
An 87 year old female is admitted to the hospital with a diagnosis of a hip fracture secondary to a fall in her home.
What clinical manifestations would you expect to see when assessing this patient?
What would be three nursing management considerations for this patient pre-operatively?
What would be three nursing management considerations post-surgical repair? What would your neurovascular assessment of the lower extremity include?
Are there any positioning considerations, if so what are they?
