You should receive help to stand and walk the day after your surgery and every day after that while you’re in the hospital.
Following surgery, ensure patients with hip fracture are mobilized at least once daily by a member of the health care staff. Where possible, family members or caregivers should be encouraged to assist with mobilization, once your health care team deems it safe and appropriate.
For Health Services
Ensure that the appropriate protocols and human resources are in place to help patients with hip fracture mobilize daily after surgery to progressively increase their functional tolerance.
