The Geriatric Fracture Program at Lancaster General Hospital

 

Estimates indicate osteoporosis is responsible for more than two million fractures a year, including 297,000 hip fractures, according to the National Osteoporosis Foundation.

The Geriatric Fracture Program at Lancaster General Health aims to establish an interdisciplinary, streamlined approach to caring for patients with fragility fractures. From the time a patient enters Emergency Medicine, the program promotes a continuum of care that facilitates smooth transitions from admission through discharge, involving at least a dozen specialties.

“We have great expectations that our program will have a near-term impact on patient care and that we’re eventually going to have a long-term impact in preventing fractures,” says Dr. Rothacker.
