The incidence of hip fractures increases with increasing age. Besides the actual trauma, it is mainly the comorbidities and an increased postoperative complication rate in old patients that lead to increased mortality in this patient population. Around 25% of patients who had previously been living independently continue to need long-term care after a hip fracture. Given this situation, the comanaged orthogeriatric unit "N-active" was opened at the Nuremberg Hospital in December 2010. The following article describes implementation of the ward and preliminary data. These show a positive impact of comanagement in terms of patient outcome, staff satisfaction, and also financial aspects.
