The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care has produced the Hip fracture care clinical care standard indicators to assist with local implementation of the Hip fracture care clinical care standard (ACSQHC 2015). The Hip fracture care clinical care standard aims to ensure that patients with a hip fracture receive optimal treatment from presentation to hospital to the completion of their treatment in hospital. This includes timely assessment and management of a hip fracture, timely surgery if indicated, and the early initiation of a tailored care plan aimed at restoring movement and function and minimising the risk of another fracture. Clinicians and health services can use the Hip fracture care clinical care standard and indicators to support the delivery of high quality care.
The Hip fracture care clinical care standard indicators contains indicators against each of the quality statements in the Standard: care at presentation, pain management, orthogeriatric model of care, timing of surgery, mobilisation and weight-bearing, minimising the risk of another fracture, transition from hospital care.
