Abstract

Background: The population in Turkey, as well as globally, is aging, and frail patients appear more frequently in emergency departments. Our study aims to identify various frailty tools to stratify risk for patients in terms of inpatient mortality, the prevalence of hospitalization, the length of hospital stay, and 30-day readmission.
