98 years old, had fell on right side. Has blisters and pain. Unable to walk. Solution?

Greetings, My mother, 98, had a terrible fall on the right side. She had no broken bones, CAT scan was negative. No bleeding , no broken bones, or hips. This fall seemed to develop hemalylic blisters on the side where she fell. What are these blisters? She is now unable to walk. These blisters are on her leg and they are open almost to the bone. The dressing is changed daily. She is in pain. She eats very little. Started to scream , holler, mourn, 24/7 The doctors are giving her roxinol. This causes her to be like a limp dish rag, extremely weak. Any suggestions? Thank you.
