    Default level of risk

    I'm in need of opinions to help settle a dispute.

    Going solely on the basis of diagnosis....what level of risk would you give for a closed fracture of 3 metatarsals that were splinted in the ED and referred to orthopaedics for definitive care.

    Thanks in advance!!!!

    Hi,

    My opinion on this we can go with level-3, for closed fracture risk and for splinting and refering to ortho speciality...

    Here in this case they dont have much work up in ED...

    Based solely on the limited info provided ... I'd assign it low risk (acute uncomplicated injury)
