ABSTRACT

ObjectivesThis study was designed to find out influential factors associated with Hospitalization of the patients from traffic accident by Groups.MethodsBased on the medical charts, we analyzed statistical study of 486 patients put-ting them into two groups to identify the factors associated with the duration of hospital-ization involving age, sex, elapse day (Interval between time of injury and visit to hospital), and the types of accident. Patients in group A were diagnosed with a mere ‘sprain’, and patients in Group B had other symptoms accompanied by ‘sprain’.Results1. In group A, cervical sprain was the most and male patients with the symptom outnumbered female patients. In group B, headache was most where female patients had the symptom 1.7 times more than male patients. 2. Female patients in group B were found to stay for a longer period of time in the hospital than the male counterparts (p<0.05). 3. Both group A and B have positive correlation between length of hospital stay and age though group B exhibited stronger correlation. 4. Patients who had accident while riding bus in group A and those who were pedestrians in group B were found to stay in the hospital for a significantly longer period of time than those who had any other types of accident (p<0.05).ConclusionsWe noticed that hospital stay lengthened when the patients were older and when they had accidents while riding bus in Group A whereas in Group B, patients stayed longer when they were females and older as well as when they were pedestrians in accidents.
