Abstract

Objective: Although emergency complaints in newborns are very rare and benign, pediatric emergency department (ED) admissions in Turkey are increasing due to early postpartum discharge and insufficient prenatal care. We aimed to analyze the factors affecting neonatal admissions to ED and to evaluate progress and outcomes following discharge, and hospitalization rates.
