Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The prevalence of tape blisters after hip fracture surgery [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 8 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Length of hospital stay [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 8 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The correlation between risk factors and tape blisters [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 8 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The possible link between the presence of tape blisters and hospital morbidity. [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 8 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The costs related to a tape blister. [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 8 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The actual costs related to a tape blister will be calculated by adding the costs of additional dressings, the costs associated with an extended hospital stay and the additional costs associated with the use of external resources.
