We recently received an emergency activation from one of our AAA Response members. Her mother had fallen and possibly fractured her hip and they needed emergency support.

We immediately dispatched Netcare 911 with an ambulance to assist the member on the scene in getting her mother off the floor and medically assessing her situation.
While the Netcare team was enroute we kept in touch with the member to evaluate her mother’s condition and help to keep the family calm. The member in the meantime had managed to get her mother moved slightly to relieve pressure on the injured side of her hip, and had also been in contact with Netcare who provided guidance on what to do while she waited for the ambulance.

On arrival of the ambulance the team stabilised the patient before transporting her to the nearest hospital for X-rays and further medical treatment. It was confirmed that the patient had suffered a fracture.
