Elderly patient laid injured for two days in North Walsham home
An elderly woman was unable to raise an alarm for two days after being badly injured in a fall at her North Walsham home.
The patient, in her 80s, who suffered a serious fracture of the femur was airlifted to Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital on Wednesday.
She was discovered conscious and breathing at her home by a East of England Ambulance crew in the Spa Common area of town shortly before 11am.
East Anglian Air Ambulance medics Dr Marcel Rigaud and critical-care paramedic Rod Wells then treated the patient before she was flown to hospital.
