AbstractAims We examined the relationship between the 1-year mortality (OYM) rate and (i) those admitted at the weekend, (ii) those who underwent surgery at the weekend and (iii) those admitted during the NCHD changeover months (January & July) for the management of hip fracture in Tallaght University Hospital (TUH). Methods Admissions to TUH (2013 - 2016) with hip fracture (> 60 years old) were retrospectively examined. Data from the Irish Deaths and Events Registry was analysed to identify death events at 1 year. Logistic regression analysis was performed with respect to OYM with the three variables above. Results 646 hip fracture patients were admitted (2013 – 2016). 178 (27.5%) were weekend admissions, 183 (28.4%) underwent weekend surgery and 93 patients (14.4%) were admitted during NCHD changeover months. There was no significant relationship between OYM and (i) weekend admission, (ii) weekend surgery or (iii) changeover admission in TUH. Conclusion This study offers the first examination of the weekend effect on fragility hip fractures and mortality in Irish patients and reports no significant weekend effect regarding 1-year mortality in this hip fracture cohort.
