[Trauma and poisoning in children and adolescents in Poland from 1980-1985 in the light of data on hospitalization. II. Territorial differences in hospitalization of children and adolescents in Poland for trauma and poisoning].
The differences between various provinces in the frequency of hospitalizations of children and adolescents in Poland in the years are presented. The data were obtained from the All-Polish study of General Hospital Morbidity. The provinces with the highest hospitalization rates included those of Wałbrzych, Jelenia Góra, Suwałki, and the lowest rates were in the Province of Gdańsk and Province of Rzeszów. A relationship was noted between the number of hospitalized patients and the duration of hospital stay--with longer hospitalization in the areas with low number of such cases.
