Comparative analysis of codes white given by the emergency departments of two different third level hospitals in Ankara
Aims: In our study, we aimed to compare the codes white given by the emergency services of two tertiary hospitals in Ankara, to reveal the significant differences between them and to discuss the reasons that may lead to these differences.
Methods: In our study, we compared the codes white data given from the Emergency Medicine Department of Bilkent Ankara City Hospital (ABCH) and Ankara Training and Research Hospital (ATRH) between 01.01.2021 and 31.12.2022. We classified the data according to the gender, occupation, working hours of the violence, the person who caused the violence, and the type of violence. For research analysis, we grouped the data using Windows-based Microsoft 365 Excel, and for statistical analysis, we used IBM SPSS version 26.
Results: The gender that was exposed to violence more in ABCH was women, the most frequent perpetrators were the relatives of the patients, and the type of violence experienced was verbal violence. In ATRH, male health workers were the most frequently exposed to violence, while the most frequent perpetrator was the patient himself, and more cases of physical violence were reported.
Conclusion: There are significant differences between the incidents of violence in the emergency departments of the two hospitals, which have different socio-cultural environments due to their location.
