National Hip Fracture Database
Nationwide audit within the NHS concerning the management and outcomes of patients with hip fractures. Set up in 2017 as a joint venture between the BOA and British Geriatric Society. It audits a number of the best practice tariff standards. Including:
- Prompt surgery
- Orthogeriatric review
- Return to residence
- Post op delirium
- NICE compliance
- Prompt mobilisations
I have completed X extra-capsular fixations and X intra-capsular fixations over the course of my training.
After completing the operation I ensure that I complete the theatre data collection sheet.
Pre-operatively, I ensure that the audited Best Practice Tariffs are completed.
