Bu çalışma, sağlık çalışanlarına yönelik yapılan şiddet olaylarını analiz etmek amacıyla tanımlayıcı bir araştırma olarak yapılmıştır. Bu amaçla 2012-2016 döneminde sağlık çalışanları web sitesinde (http://www.saglikcalisanisagligi.org/siddet) yayınlanan şiddet olaylarıyla ilgili haberler analiz edilmiştir. Çalışma kapsamında 597 makale alınmıştır. Verilerin analizinde tanımlayıcı istatistikler kullanılmış ve çalışmayı yürütmek için web sitesinin yönetiminden izin alınmıştır. Bu çalışmanın sonuçlarına göre, en sık Marmara Bölgesi'nde (%26), devlet hastanelerinde (%53,5) ve acil servislerde (%34,5) şiddet olayları yaşanmıştır. Araştırmada hekimlerin şiddeti daha fazla yaşadığı (%62), en sık şiddetin sözel şiddet olduğu (%48), şiddet kullananların çoğunlukla hasta yakınları olduğu ve şiddet için en sık görülen nedenlerin hasta kaybı, bilgi eksikliği, uzun süre beklemek, hizmet alamamak, haksız davranış ve tartışmalar olduğu sonucuna varılmıştır. Haberlerde yer alan şiddet olaylarının sonuçlarına ilişkin bilgiler göz önüne alındığında, %59,7 oranında basına yansıyan bir sonuç olmadığı görülmektedir.

Bu çalışmanın amacı şiddete neden olan durumları bilmek ve tıbbi kurumlarda bu nedenleri ortadan kaldırmak için önleyici stratejiler oluşturmanın önemini ortaya koymaktır. Araştırmanın sonuçları doğrultusunda sağlık çalışanlarına yönelik şiddet haberlerinin dikkatsizce yazıldığı, ayrıntılardan yoksun olduğu ve düşmanca bir tarzda yapılandırıldığı ortaya konulmuştur.

   This study was carried out as a descriptive study aiming to analyze the violence incidents towards health care workers. For this purpose in the period of 2012-2016 news about violence events published on the health care workers website (http://www.saglikcalisanisagligi.org/siddet) were analyzed. 597 articles were included in the study. Descriptive statistics were used in the analysis of the data and permission was taken from the website’s management to carry out the work.

According to the results of this study violence incidents took place most frequently in the Marmara region (26%), at state hospitals (53.5%) and in emergency services (34.5%). It was determined in the study that doctors experienced violence more (62%), most frequent form of violence was verbal (48%), people using violence were mostly relatives of the patients, and the most frequent reasons shown for violence were loss of patient, lack of information, waiting in line for a long time, being unable to receive service, unruly behavior and arguments. Considering the information regarding the results of cases of violence in the news, no results were seen to be reflected in the press by 59.7%

The aim of this study is to know the situations about causing violence and to reveal the importance of creating preventive strategies to eliminate these causes in medical institutions. In the light of these results, it has been revealed that the news of violence against health care workers were written carelessly, lacking details and they were structured in a hostile style.
