HIP Fracture Accelerated Surgical TreaTment and Care TracK (HIP ATTACK) Trial

If you consent to participate, you will be randomly assigned to one of two groups. if you are in the first group, you will receive surgery when you would normally have it if you were not in this study (usually within 36 hours). Your surgery will not be delayed because of the study. In the second group, you will receive surgery within 6 hours of your hip fracture diagnosis.

A few simple blood tests will be done before and after your surgery regardless of which group you are in the HIP ATTACK Trial nurses will take medical information from your chart and follow your course in the hospital. They will also follow-up with you by telephone after you go home.
