In brief: Hip fracture

Each hip fracture has its own personality and may require conservative or surgical treatments: traction, bed rest, decubitus precautions, pulmonary toilet, anticoagulants, pt, im nail, orif, & joint arthroplasty.

In brief: Study your syllabus

This sounds like homework for a nursing class, which is the only setting the jargon is used.
Your instructors will expect you to find your answers in your study materials, not by cruising the web. If your answers do not contain the jargon they use in your study materials they will mark you down on your answers.

In brief: Mobilize

Hip fractures are serious, usually in older patients, and in this group have a 20-25% one year mortality.
Coordinated surgical, nursing and rehab treatment is required. Nursing intervention would include identifying and responding co-morbidities.
