Re: Nursing of patient with lower leg fracture
If a person has a broken fib or tib they change there underwear every day.
If they are strong enough they can get out of bed and walk with crutches non weight bearing on the broken side. What do you mean if the "cast has failed to heal"? Do you mean if the fracture has failed to heal?
