Patients of all ages present to the Emergency Department (ED) with fractures that require immobilization using a cast. Various casting materials are used, all with advantages and disadvantages and there are considerable risks associated with fracture management using cast immobilization. The frequency and severity of complications from fiberglass or hybrid casts applied in the emergency setting has not previously been studied. The aim of this audit was to describe all the complications that occurred within 30 days in patients who had a fiberglass cast applied for immobilization of uncomplicated, non-angulated fractures of the foot, ankle or forearm...

BACKGROUND: In Greece there is no systematic assessment of surgical wounds with the use of a validated instrument, while the ASEPSIS scoring method has been widely used internationally. AIM: To examine the frequency of wound infections and their correlations both with patient background factors, as well as surgery factors, with the use of ASEPSIS. METHODS: In this prospective, observational study, participants undergoing orthopaedic surgeries in a large hospital in Greece were assessed during hospitalisation and the first month after discharge using the ASEPSIS wound assessment tool...

OBJECTIVE: Better patient outcomes and more efficient healthcare could be achieved by predicting post hip fracture function at an early stage. This study aimed to identify independent predictors of mobility outcome one week post hip fracture surgery. METHODS: All hip fracture inpatients (n=77) were included in this 6 month prospective observational cohort study. Predictor variables were obtained on the first postoperative day and included premorbid function using the New Mobility Score (NMS)...

AIM: To test the psychometric validity of the Good Perioperative Nursing Care Scale (GPNCS), a self-administered questionnaire, following translation and adaptation. INTRODUCTION: Patients' satisfaction with and experience of nursing care in orthopaedic or perioperative settings are currently not routinely measured and few standardized patient-reported experience measurement tools exist for these settings. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Cross-sectional survey...

BACKGROUND: A major goal of care for orthopaedic surgical patients is the achievement of their pre-morbid functional level or at least an improvement of their functional ability. However, patients with altered mental status can significantly impact this and other outcomes and influence the delivery of care. Patient mobilisation is a role shared by both nurses and physiotherapists. AIMS: To enhance the understanding of nurses and physiotherapists' experience in mobilising postoperative orthopaedic patients with altered mental status...

Practice development enables the practitioner to develop their knowledge and allow the application of evidence based care for patients. It happens within the practitioner's own clinical practice area and enhances personal and professional growth whilst focusing on patients' specific needs. This is important with a condition such as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), with patients seekingaccurate and timely diagnosis and coping strategies to support them in everyday activities. This article aims to provide the practitioner with an overview of CRPS, including some information that can be used in identifying signs and symptoms of the condition to support a diagnosis...

Gillian Janes, Laura Serrant, Magi Sque
This critical review of the literature regarding the recovery experiences and healthcare needs of people under 60 following a fragility hip fracture seeks to identify the associated implications for nursing practice and inform care delivery. Forty papers were included following a structured database, citation and grey literature search and filtering of results in line with specified inclusion criteria. Hip fracture is a common, serious and complex injury and an important cause of morbidity, mortality and rising healthcare costs worldwide...

BACKGROUND: It is vital that patients take an active role in self-management of their chronic knee pain condition. The Chronic Knee Pain Program was developed to assist patients in managing their chronic condition and to improve their overall well-being. PURPOSE: The purpose of this pilot study was to determine the feasibility of a six-week self-management program and to explore whether it may assist in decreasing body mass index (BMI) and depression symptom severity and increase physical activity levels in obese adults with chronic knee pain...

AIM: The aim of the study was to compare the effects of a preoperative position splint and skin traction on pain, comfort, complications, and satisfaction with the treatment and care for patients with hip fracture. METHOD: This randomized trial was conducted with a total of 68 patients with hip fracture in a tertiary care hospital in Turkey. Preoperatively, a position splint was applied to the patients in the intervention group (n = 34) and skin traction was applied to patients (n = 34) in the control group...

OBJECTIVES: All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) are increasing in popularity and becoming larger and faster at a production level. As a Level I Trauma Center, we perceived a disproportionately high volume of ATV-related admissions. Our goal was to study injury patterns and severity in adult and pediatric populations. METHODS: All ATV-related trauma admissions at a single Level I trauma center were retrospectively analyzed over a seven-year period. RESULTS: On-road incidents were more likely to result in a higher average Injury Severity Score (ISS) (p < 0...

Pat Johnson, Chloe Griggs
The aim of this article is to share the experience of how a multi-disciplinary team worked together to develop the nursing role to incorporate the practitioners supporting mobilisation of a patient. The role developed nurses' competence, ensuring that the information and instruction patients received were consistent between therapists and nursing staff, but also supported the Enhanced Recovery Programme (2010). There were issues with the level of therapy support, especially out of hours. The team agreed a vision together, with a solution to the problem on how the mobilisation of patients post-surgery could be achieved...
