In a nutshell: The aim of this study was to determine the proportion of patients admitted with a hip fracture to hospitals participating in the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS-NSQIP), who were treated within the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) time-to-hip-fracture-surgery benchmark. The study also aimed to identify factors associated with missing the benchmark and to determine whether the benchmark was associated with improved 30-day patient outcomes.
