HISTORY OF PRESENT ILLNESS
I was called to see this 69-year-old black female patient, well known to me, who was brought to the emergency room after she sustained an injury of her right hip. She states she was walking when her right leg “gave out” and she fell onto the right hip. She complained of mild pain in the right hip and mild edema was noted in the emergency room. In addition she had external rotation of the right leg. Initial x-ray demonstrated findings of intertrochanteric fracture, non-displaced of the right hip. Consultation was obtained from Doctor Dodd who concurred with the diagnosis and treatment recommendations were made. She was subsequently admitted to the hospital for further evaluation and treatment including: surgical repair of the hip. PAST MEDICAL HISTORY
