Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Hospitals near Cervinia

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Slightly off the wall question, but back in 2002 a friend was injured skiing in Cervinia and ended up being fitted with a replacement hip. He's now hoping the hospital might have records of the joint they fitted, but can't recall which hospital he was taken to. We know it was some distance (an hour?) from the resort.

Does anybody know the most likely hospital he might have ended up in? Or are there loads of possibilities? And of course things might have changed in last 20 years!

According to Google Maps Aosta is about an hour from Cervinia

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Maybe Aoste? Nothing else capable in that direction, afaik, but Italian hospitals are, ... odd. Didn’t he keep any records, at all?

Can't an xray determine the type? Or is this some class action compo thing?

Aosta rings a bell, thank you guys.

And no, not the kind of chap to be looking for compo, far from it.

Don’t know exactly what the need is, but it’s something they can’t easily determine from the X-ray.

Didn’t keep any records at the time, at that point I think he was just glad to be walking again.

Without doubt it will be Aoste , my friend was airlifted there from Cervina when he smashed foot and ankle .

I won’t comment about the hospital .

Aosta general hospital. My hospital is trying to get info from them for a screw they stuck in my leg in 2018 and no luck so far. It took me months to get the xrays and medical report back too

Ortho is ortopedia@ausl.vda .it but it’s probably the office he’ll want and one department won’t forward requests onto another. Also he’ll need to speak and write Italian so if he has an Italian friend who can call them he’ll get what he needs far quicker

Brilliant thank you. My friend's doctors who have a similar question about the hardware used on him. I don't think they want to open him up and find they've got the wrong sized spanner!

I'll pass on your tips.
