Sample of study was 90 patients aged 65 and older, diagnosed with hematologic oncology disorder, hospitalized in hematologic oncology clinic and admitted to outpatient clinic at an education and research hospital in Ankara, Turkey. Patient data sheet and Edmonton Frailty Scale were used for data collection. Data were analyzed with the Mann Whitney-U test, Kruskal Wallis, Ki Square. 60% of patients were frail and mean score of scale was 5,59±3,13 (max. 11). Patients’ frailty level distributions were not frail %40, vulnerable %17,8, mild frailty %20, moderate frailty %16,7, and severe frailty %5,5. Frailty score was higher in patients aged 75 and over, had 4 children and over, diagnosed with leukemia and diagnosis duration lasted 2 years or longer. There was no statistically significant difference between gender, marital status, socioeconomic status, comorbidity, and frailty level. With this study geriatric hematologic oncology patients’ frailty levels were determined. According to the results, treatment plan, and nursing care should be planned based on frailty levels and risk of patients.
