*Anesthesia: Most surgical procedures require this. There could be problems with medical complications, drugs used, and even the anesthesia.
*Pneumonia:Bed rest increases your chance of developing pneumonia. After the hip fracture, a lot of rest is needed.
*Pressure Ulcers (Bed Sores): When lying down in bed due to the hip fracture, bed sores happen due to pressure against the skin and lack of blood flow.
*Thrombophlebitis (Blood Clots): This is also caused from lying down and remaining still. They typically form on the legs where the greatest pressure is exerted from the body.
*Mental Confusion: No one likes hospitals. When someone is admitted they may experience stress, different behavior and sometimes become depressed.
