Description: Broken Bones Common Pediatric Upper Extremity Fractures-Part II (Nursing Center CE) Nurses are often one of the first healthcare providers to assess a child with a fracture. Although basic fracture care and principles are used, nurses caring for these young patients must also have a good understanding of normal bone growth and development and common mechanisms of injury and fracture patterns seen in children. Although most pediatric fractures can be treated successfully with closed reduction and immobilization (casting), health care providers must remain cognizant of complications that can arise.
