Washington Hospital Quality
A service of the Washington State Hospital Association

What is this?

The average amount of time a patient was in the emergency department before they were moved to the hospital. Lower is better.

Why this matters?

Long stays in an emergency department before a patient is admitted may be a sign that the emergency department is understaffed or overcrowded. This may result in delays in treatment or lower quality care.
