Which of the following is the most appropriate nursing intervention to facilitate healing in a patient who has suffered a hip fracture?

Answer Explanation: Placing a pillow between the patients legs when turning prevents adduction and supports the patients legs. Administering analgesics addresses pain but does not directly protect bone remodeling and promote healing. Rotation of the affected leg can cause dislocation and must be avoided. Prone positioning does not need to be maintained at all times.
