Abstract

Date Presented 3/30/2017

This study describes a geriatric population at a medical center admitted for femur fracture to determine the impact of a multidisciplinary team specializing in geriatric trauma. Results show a significant increase in utilization of occupational therapy services and cognitive assessment and a decrease in length of stay.
