BACKGROUND: Immobility and prolonged bed rest often lead to heel pressure ulcers in patients. A point prevalence audit undertaken in the orthopaedic wards of a Singapore tertiary hospital reported that 6 out of 30 patients who were audited had mild to blanching redness on their heels. AIMS: The evidence-based project sought to achieve 80% compliance from nurses to perform heel off-loading practice and a 50% reduction in the occurrence of heel pressure ulcers. METHODS: The project, lasting two years, was undertaken in two orthopaedic wards and utilized a pre- and post-implementation audit strategy using the Joanna Briggs Institute on-line 'Practical Application of Clinical Evidence System' and 'Getting Research into Practice' programs...

BACKGROUND: Due to the shortened length of stay in fast-track total hip and knee arthroplasty, patients must at a very early stage following surgery take responsibility for their postoperative care and treatment. It is important to establish if this treatment modality of fast-track is not only cost-effective, but meets patients' expectations and needs. AIM: To explore the lived experience of patients in fast-track total hip and knee arthroplasty during the first 12 weeks after discharge...

INTRODUCTION: Evidence supporting physiotherapy prior to hip or knee replacement for decreasing pain and improving function pre and post-operatively is equivocal. This observational cohort study used a mixed-methods approach to investigate whether 8 weeks of physiotherapy led exercise and education ('prehabilitation') would change pain and functional outcomes prior to surgery, and if patients' expectations and satisfaction post-surgery were influenced. METHODS: Participants awaiting THR or TKR were recruited (n = 75)...

BACKGROUND: Nurses are involved in delivering care for patients following acute traumatic spinal cord injury throughout the entire care journey. An injury of this type is significant for the individual and their family and can be challenging for nurses delivering care for patients with life changing injuries, especially for nurses new to this setting. There is a lack of research that examines the experience of nurses caring for these patients in the acute setting. METHOD: A hermeneutic phenomenological approach was used to understand the experience of nurses caring for patients in the acute setting who had sustained a traumatic spinal injury with associated neurological deficit...

BACKGROUND: Hip fractures are described to have a significant impact on patients' well-being and different fast-track concepts could result in a reduction of the patient's psychological and emotional reactions before pre- and intrahospital care. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to elucidate perceived situations of significance experienced by patients with hip fracture during the prehospital- and in-hospital care. DESIGN: The study used a qualitative approach using a critical incident technique (CIT), 14 patients with hip fractures were included...

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...

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...

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: The Asian lifestyle requires deep hip flexion, which increases the risk of dislocation. Hence, Asian total hip arthroplasty (THA) patients may have problems postoperatively. This study aimed to 1) document quality of life (QoL), Asian lifestyle-related items (five postures that require deep hip flexion), and perceived satisfaction in patients who underwent THA in Japan versus Korea, 2) assess the differences in QoL and Asian lifestyle-related items by patient lifestyle, and 3) identify the factors predicting QoL...

INTRODUCTION: Hip fractures are a serious injury especially among older people, mainly caused by falls and women have a higher risk. The authors studied gender differences in hip fractures, marital status, waiting times for surgery and mortality in an older population. METHODS: Data was obtained for all 67 years and older admitted with hip fractures to an Emergency Department (ED) in Iceland 2008-2012. The associations of covariates with mortality were analyzed using multivariable logistic regression...

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...

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...
