BACKGROUND: As distal radius fractures as well as diagnostic and therapeutic options vary widely, there is an enormous potential for deficient convalescence and subsequent patient dissatisfaction. The aim of this study is the evaluation of malpractice in distal radius fracture management, which could help to draw conclusions regarding optimization and prevention as well as raising patient satisfaction and minimizing subsequent costs. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Files and patient data of all distal radius fracture complaints regarding one public hospital operator in a period between 2007 and 2017 were reviewed and subjected to descriptive statistics. RESULTS: A total of 35 cases with complaints regarding medical treatment, communication and long-term effects were identified, broken down into key issues and analyzed by means of descriptive statistics. CONCLUSION: Complications and long-term effects of distal radius fractures are not completely avoidable. It is possible, however, to prevent lack of communication and treatment delays. To achieve increased patient satisfaction, it is essential to reflect on diagnostic, therapeutic and interpersonal strategies.
