Core Tip Patients admitted on weekends have been suggested by multiple studies to have poorer outcomes, even in those with gastrointestinal bleeding. Therefore, we conducted a meta-analysis of observational studies to examine the effect of weekend vs weekday admissions for patients with upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB). We discovered that patients with UGIB admitted on weekends had higher mortality, need for surgery, and time to endoscopy compared to those admitted on weekdays. This meta-analysis demonstrates the need for policies to decrease these poorer outcomes for our weekend patients with UGIB.
