Table 2 Fracture class, fall locations and discharge dispositions

From: Geriatric trauma hip fractures: is there a difference in outcomes based on fracture patterns?

  Femoral neck (N, %) Trochanteric (N, %)
Fall locations Home 124 (74.3) 115 (72.8)
  Nursing home 9 (5.4) 9 (5.7)
  Other 34 (20.4) 34 (21.5)
  Total 167 (100) 158 (100)
Discharge disposition Home 21 (12.6) 19 (12.1)
  SNF/Rehab/LTC 138 (82.6) 126 (80.3)
  Died/hospice 8 (4.8) 12 (7.6)
  Total 167 (100) 158 (100)
  1. SNF/Rehab/LTC represents skilled nursing facility, rehabilitation and long-term care. Pearson’s chi-square (2 df) = 0.09, p = 0.979 for fall locations. Pearson’s chi-square (2 df) = 1.14, p = 0.566 for discharge disposition.
