Due to a fall from a second story townhouse, Jimmy sustained a fractured left femur and mild head injury. He is being transferred out of the pediatric ICU where the Neurologist has stated he is stable but needs continued neuro checks q2 hours. The Foley catheter is to be replaced today, or he can attempt to roll onto a bedpan if needed.
The systems that are affected by this boy’s injuries include: the nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, cardiovascular system and respiratory system.
Jimmy’s fractured femur is a more serious injury than a broken leg, due to the risk of internal bleeding. This can be treated with surgery and/or multiple surgeries. The head injury may or may not cause long-term problems, depending on how severe it was, what caused it and when it occurred.
