Washington Hospital Quality
A service of the Washington State Hospital Association

What is this?

The amount of time between when an emergency room patient was moved to the hospital before they were given a room. Lower is better.

Why this matters?

Delays in transferring emergency department patients to a room may be a sign that there's not enough staff or there's poor coordination among hospital departments. Long delays can also create more stress for patients and families.
