Trust Response

The percentage of patients with a fractured clavicle operated on by St Peters Hospital who had an open fracture.

  Total 2013 2014 2015
Open fracture = diagnosis code S42.01 204 74 52 78
% operated on = above plus Z68.1 in any secondary position 49.0% 55.4% 48.1% 43.6%

 

The percentage of patients with a fractured clavicle operated on by St Peters Hospital who had a multiple fracture.

The Trust cannot answer this question as we cannot identify multiple fractures on the same clavicle.
