Fractured proximal femur can accelerate death. Variations in death rates for fractured proximal femur between ‘like’ populations suggest that some of these deaths are potentially avoidable. The National Health Service (NHS) may be helped to prevent some of these deaths by seeing comparative figures and learning lessons from follow-up investigations.
The next release date for this indicator is to be confirmed.
