I am sorry to hear about her injury. Normally hospitals admit people when they are acutely ill or injured. At some point they normally will need to discharge the patient. Depending on how much recovery is needed, they could be transferred to a rehabilitation facility or sometimes to a nursing home. A femur fracture is a significant concern - and she may need to have extra help arranged at the >.
