Chief Complaint: 72-year-old woman who fell on her right hip. History: Margaret Donovan, a 72-year-old white female, was brought to the emergency room by her son-in-law after falling in her bathtub. She was previously in good health, despite leading a relatively sedentary lifestyle and having a 30-pack-year history of cigarette smoking. The only medication she currently takes is Inderal (propranolol) for mild hypertension. She fell upon entering the bathtub when her right leg slipped out from under her; she landed on her right hip. There was no trauma to her head, nor does she complain of right or left wrist pain. However, she reports severe pain in the right hip and upper thigh, and was unable to get up after her fall.

Patient Summary One afternoon a 67 year-old man presented to the emergency department of a small, rural hospital complaining of severe left leg and hip pain following a fall at home. The patient had no past history of falls. He had a history of impaired glucose intolerance, prostate cancer, hypercholesterolemia and hyperlipidemia.

departments, this proved problematic as hospitals relied on vendor support for employee training, medical procedure support, patient follow-up and more. As these services were typically at no charge (or hidden in the product price), their cost was a non-issue for the hospital.
