The purpose of this document is to provide nurses who care for older adults with fragility hip fracture with a framework to promote safe and optimal care for this vulnerable population. The successful application of the standards of care contained in this document requires clinical expertise and evidence-supported decision-making in order to maximize patient outcomes. In 2012, 2013 a two part consensus document published in the International Journal of Orthopaedic and Trauma Nursing entitled “Acute nursing care of the older adult with fragility hip fracture: an international perspective” was developed by nursing leaders from seven countries across 3 continents who delineated the recommended care standards for this group of patients (Maher et al., 2012; Maher et al., 2013).
