Geriatric Hip Fracture Program
A fracture of the hip in an aging adult is not simply a broken bone, as complications can make it a life-threatening condition. Research shows that patients who are treated quickly after a hip fracture have better outcomes. Monmouth Medical Center’s Geriatric Hip Fracture Program is designed to get patients into surgery faster and minimize complications, with an ultimate goal of getting patients back to their pre-injury quality of life. The program uses a multidisciplinary team approach to care that includes:
- Emergency Medicine Physician— Undertakes acute interventions to stabilize patients and consults with orthopaedic surgeon to detect the fracture and put the patient on a fast track to surgery
- Orthopaedic Surgeon—Performs surgery and directs patient care.
- Internal Medicine Physician—Assesses and evaluates patient’s medical needs during the hospital stay.
- Mid Level Providers (Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners and Registered Nurses)— Assist during surgery, and evaluate patients during the hospital stay.
- Anesthesia Team— Administers anesthesia during surgery and helps with postoperative pain management.
- Care Coordinator/Social Worker— Coordinates hospital discharge plans between the patient’s family, doctor, nursing, and physical therapy. Makes arrangements for continued care after discharge if needed, and interacts with insurance companies as needed.
- Physical Therapy/Occupational Therapy— Provide exercises to increase strength and instruction on the correct way to walk and adjustments for daily living.
Additionally, Monmouth Medical Center’s Geriatric Hip Fracture Program features a Geriatric Emergency Medicine (GEM) Unit staffed by physicians and nurses specially trained and dedicated to caring for seniors, and a nurse practitioner trained in geriatrics is who serves as program coordinator and communicates closely with the referring physician. The unit also has a dedicated pharmacist who will focus on medications commonly prescribed for seniors with special attention to issues that can result in dangerous interactions.
