Vicious Winter Overloads Idaho Hospitals
Injuries are mounting up from all kinds of weather related accidents and our local hospitals are working overtime.
Slips, falls are making up the majority of the injuries. There's been lots of vehicle accidents, people getting sick and other weather related injuries that keep filling up the hospital beds.
Doctors are seeing more broken bones this year than they've ever seen. Mainly older people with broken hips or ankles. Doctors are asking those that have low bone density or mobility problems to please be extra careful.
Most of these injuries happen when shoveling a driveway, going out to get your pet, or checking the mail.
