KeywordsFractures ; Mental health [elderly] ; Admission [hospitals] ; Discharge [hospitals] ; Longitudinal surveys.
Annotation50 patients aged over 65 with fractured femurs were followed up for 6 months. A hospital stay of less than 28 days and a good pre-fracture mental state were such important favourable prognostic factors, that their absence made the outlook poor and carried clear implications concerning management.
