The National Model of Care for hip fracture has been organized into six categories; Pre-Operative, Surgery, Postoperative, Delirium, Dementia and Depressions, Osteoporosis and Falls prevention.
There are a number of tools that have been developed at a regional or provincial level made available to support implementation of the model of care. BJC does not endorse any of the individual tools on the site.If you are unable to download the Toolkit directly from the website then right click and save the document to your computer or a USB. You will then be able to open it from there. If you cannot save the document contact Rhona McGlasson at RhonaaMcGlasson@gmail.com.
Preoperative Resources covers the best practices during the pre operative stages of a patient’s care including:
- Referral processes.
- Wait times management.
- Assessing patient condition and health.
- Optimizing patient physical status.
- Educating patient and patient family.
ER and Pre operative Clinical Practice Guidelines
This document provides the clinical context for the management of patients in the Emergency Room and through their pre operative stay to maximize their medical condition and prepare them for surgery.
ER and Pre Operative Quick Reference Guidelines
This document can be used by staff within the Emergency Room as a quick reference tool to ensure the effective management of hip fracture patients.
Surgery to Optimize Function
The attached document provides recommendations on best practices in the surgical management of hip fracture patients.
The initial post operative care for hip fracture patients occurs through day 1 – 5 after the surgery in the acute care hospital when the focus on the medical stabilization of patients as well as mobilization and preventing complications. Once the patients initial medical needs are addressed the focus of care turn to rehabiliation and functional recovery.
The care maps provide the best practice care in the post operative care of hip fracture patients in acute care. Included are all of the important considerations in the management of hip fracture patients including:
- discharge planning
The following are examples of care maps that are used in
Rehabilitation plays a significant role in improving functional recovery in all stages of care for patients who have sustained a hip fracture including through the early postoperative mobilization to secondary prevention using exercise and balance activities. This document provides a detailed look at the rehabilitation strategies to maximize functional recovery.
