Key Words Hip fracture; Weekend admission; Time to surgery; Morbidity; Mortality; Complication rate
Core Tip This is a retrospective review of operative geriatric hip fractures admitted to a large, tertiary care center between 2015-2017. Patients who presented on a weekend were compared to patients who presented on a weekday. Geriatric hip fracture patients that presented on a weekend experienced a higher complication rate and longer times from emergency department arrival to medical optimization, from medical optimization to surgery, and from emergency department arrival to surgery. This is important for orthopaedic surgeons to know so they can mitigate this increased morbidity accordingly.
