In this study, a definition of the current status has been aimed at by means of examining the quantity of forms issued for the patients brought to Atatürk University Medical Faculty Emergency Department with the 112 Emergency mobile Service (EMS).

Material and Methods:

The forms of 1448 patients transferred to our emergency service from the Erzurum Centrum, Erzurum district and surrounding provinces between the dates of 01.02.2005 and 30.06.2007 were examined. In the data analysis; Statistical Package for Social Sciences for Windows Version 11.0 package program was used.


Fourty-seven units of 1448 forms (3.25%) could not been examined as they could not be read at all or were completely empty. We determined that the demographic information belonging to patients was not available at the rate of between 44.2% and 95.9%, personal information between 38.5% and 69.1%, medical information between 13.4% and 98.4%, transfer information between 29.3% and 72.1% and delivery registrations between 3.1% and 98.6%.


For an effective registration system, it is appropriate to switch to the usage of electronic identity cards in which all identity information and health records can be kept.. It is necessary to make its use obligatory for all hospitals and 112 EMS in order for the common database to be used.
