From Silver to Gold for Niigata Rehabilitation Hospital

Congratulations to Niigata Rehabilitation Hospital for achieving a gold! This hospital joined Capture the Fracture in May 2016 for the first time, and was awarded a silver for its services to prevent secondary fractures.

The FLS has been revaluated recently and is now officially recognized as a Gold FLS in #Japan. The FLS is led by Dr. Yamamoto, and sees hip fracture patients, inpatients, outpatients, and vertebral fracture patients. The service provides comprehensive post-fracture assessment and long-term follow up for patients over the course of two years so that they won’t have another fracture again.

Japan now has 17 FLS registered with CTF, among which 3 are gold FLS, 6 are silver FLS, and 7 are Bronze FLS (1 is under review).
