Then the managers were asked to fulfill the questionnaire. Meanwhile, a checklist was prepares to control the managers' responses. Results : Totally, 55 of all statistical indices were used by managers. Delivery room- and operation room-related indices were used more (64), however, mortality rate indices were used less (47). Conclusion : Managers do not frequently used statistical indices. Needless to say, proper management is associated with higher efficacy and better implication of hospital's facilities.
