A case study was conducted on the patients with Thomas splint at Vinayaka Mission’s Hospital, Salem with the objective of assessing the effectiveness of planned nursing care for the patients with Thomas splint. During admission all patients were having fracture, skin abrasion, and potential for pressure sore and one patient had profuse fracture bleeding and resulting hypovolemia, temperature irregularities. After using standardized tool for assessment and planned nursing care to the patients their recovery process was satisfactory. At the time of discharge or end of study the patient’s major symptoms got relieved or alleviated and they and their relatives were satisfied with the care provided. Thus it can be concluded that the planned nursing care was effective for the patients with Thomas splint.
