Who can give me some help on how to care for a child with a fractured femur?

The child I look after has fractured her femur. She is very small, I was wondering if anybody could give me some information that would help me care for her when I am with her, and anything that could speed up recovery time, and just any info that could be relevant. Much appreciated.

Answer #1

You can make her drink a lot of milk and be really gentle, that’s all I know.

Answer #2

You would apply a thing called a Hare Traction splint. You can also apply a regular splint. NEVER apply bandage tape or a cravat directly over the injury. Lettmee know if you need anything else(:
