Pain Management Interventions for Hip Fracture

Slide: 3 of 46

Health Impact in the United States of Hip Fracture From Low-Impact Injury

The incidence of hip fracture increases with age and is a recognized risk for the elderly. The incidence increases approximately 30-fold for men and 50-fold for women in age groups from 50 to 80 years. The mortality rates in the 1st year after injury are high, at 25% for women and 37% for men. For those who survive, the return to a prefracture level of function is poor, and up to 50% of patients are still in care facilities at 1 year postfracture.
