Institute is dedicated to providing the best possible care for hip fracture
patients. Experienced nursing staff and therapists from Courage Kenny
Rehabilitation Institute care for patients recovering from hip fracture surgery
on a designated unit. A multidisciplinary group of physicians and leaders meets
monthly to review outcomes and implement process improvements.
The providers and staff at the Orthopaedic Institute care for more than
175 hip fracture patients each year.
Coordinated care and services begin prior to the patient’s arrival in
the Emergency Department and continue well after discharge from the hospital. The
Orthopaedic Institute partners with several assisted living and skilled nursing
facilities throughout the community to streamline the process of providing safe
and efficient care for hip fracture patients.
To minimize complications and get patients back into their own
environment, the goal is for patients to undergo surgery within 24 hours when
appropriate. By collaborating with the Acute Pain Service, the hip fracture
team can offer options for anesthesia and pain management that help minimize
complications such as delirium.
