Icy steps and sidewalks are keeping local doctors busy. Dr. Thomas Wendel works in the Urgent Care Center at Bend Memorial Clinic. He says in the past few days, they've been very busy treating patients who fell on the ice. “That's manifesting itself frequently in broken ribs, broken shoulders, broken hips and the more favorable just have bothersome bruises and cuts in those areas.  We are seeing that sort of spectrum and indeed all ages. If you throw in sports; we're seeing a lot of fall related injury associated with skiing and snow boarding." Wendel says many people are falling at their homes in daily activities like taking out the garbage. He says it's important to take a few extra minutes and put on shoes with better traction.
