The prevalence of tape blisters after hip fracture surgery [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 8 days ]
Same as current
No Changes Posted
  • Length of hospital stay [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 8 days ]
  • The correlation between risk factors and tape blisters [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 8 days ]
  • The possible link between the presence of tape blisters and hospital morbidity. [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 8 days ]
  • The costs related to a tape blister. [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 8 days ]
    The actual costs related to a tape blister will be calculated by adding the costs of additional dressings, the costs associated with an extended hospital stay and the additional costs associated with the use of external resources.
