Background and Objectives: Geriatic patients with hip fracture is one of the common causes of injury-related complication, morbidity and mortality if inappropriate care. The development of multidisciplinary care were effectiveness for geriatric hip fracture  more securely.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Methods: The research and development study was conducted in participants who had geriatric hip fracture and admitted to the orthopaedic department of Saraburi Hospital from February 2017 to January     2019. A purposive sampling of 124 patient for retrospective and 124 patient for prospective group were recruited for the study. Both groups were evaluated for age, gender, type of fracture , and treatment. Descriptive statistics, Independent t-test and Chi-Square were used to analyze data.                                                              Results: The results showed the prospective group had time from admission to surgery was 5.9±2 days (retrospective group 11.1±4), the length of stay in hospital was 14.5±4 days (retrospective group 21.2±5 ) then followed up of 1 year mortality rate was measured to be 9.6% (retrospective group 17.7% ) less than the retrospective group with statistic significantly. (p<0.05)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Conclusions: Multidisciplinary care development were effectiveness for decreased  morbidity and mortality rate in geriatric hip fracture.                                                                                                                                          Keyword: Geriatric; Hip fracture; Multidisciplinary care
