Fragility Fracture

Northwest Hospital's Fragility Fracture Program brings together providers from a broad scope of disciplines including emergency medicine, hospital medicine, orthopedics, therapies and other disciplines to establish a consistent process for intake, treatment and discharge of patients suffering from hip fractures due to age, osteoporosis and falls.

The goals of the program are to reduce mortality and post-operative complications, shorten the length of stay in the hospital and increase a patient's ability to function after surgery.

A team at Northwest Hospital has developed a treatment process for patients with hip fractures, starting even before they reach the hospital and continuing through surgery, post-operative care, discharge from the hospital, rehabilitation therapy and recovery. The program seeks to improve the quality of care for patients with a hip fracture by partnering with orthopedists who are managing the fracture and hospitalists who are managing the patient's other medical conditions.
