If I have a patient that falls from standing getting out of shower with a solitary hip fx, are we to include this as a PTOS patient due to the mechanism code (W18.2) and this falls out of the stated codes listed in the guidelines?

Yes, the code W18.2 is not in the exclusion list and so would meet PTOS criteria.
