Dear editor,
Recently, Ayalew et al. have published an article, titled, “Drug related hospital admissions; A
systematic review of the recent literatures” in Bull Emerg Trauma in 2019, 7th volume and 4th issue that has been caught our attention [1]. Even though the results of the study are interesting, there are flaws due to the authors’ negligence in the method, which leads to ambiguity in the interpretation of the findings. Therefore, the points expressed in this letter indicate what are needed to be perused in reporting systematic reviews.
