Back ground: Over all, India reported 418 accidental deaths a day in 2009 an increased by 7.3 % compared to 2008 as per National Crime Records Bureau’s annual report of deaths and suicides across the country. Objective: To assesstime taken from accident to discharge from the hospital. Study design: Cross sectional Setting: Indoor Orthopedic and ward of a tertiary hospital Sample Size: Thirty patients of both sexes of the fracture of lower femur (supracondyler and intercondyler) admitted in a tertiary hospital. Statistical Analysis: Simple proportion. Findings: 36.66% of patients were operated on or before five days of accident, only 13.33% patients were operated after two weeks this may because of the associated injury or medical complications like diabetes and/or hypertension, 50% of the patients discharge from the hospital on or before seven days of the operation, only 6.7% patients took more than 35 days in their discharge. Conclusion: there is an urgent need to conduct Continuous Medical Education (C.M.E) all concerned on “rational use of drugs “to put a full stop on development of resistance against the drugs otherwise patients have to suffer a lot and the treatment will be beyond the reach of the most of the patients which ultimately harm all concerned irrespective of caste, creed, colour, religion, profession rich or poor.
