Purpose: Like other departments, some cases related-connected to medical ethics emerge in the delivery room, which is a specific medical unit. The purpose of this study is to identify the prevalence of these cases and the level of importance given to them, thus to describe what kind of a working environment the delivery room is in terms of medical ethics, and to find out what kind of a professional value system persons working in this unit have.
