Washington Hospital Quality
A service of the Washington State Hospital Association

What is this?

Total time a person spent in the emergency department before they went home. This doesn't include people who were admitted or taken to another hospital, or who left before being treated. Lower is better.

Why this matters?

Long stays in the emergency department before a patient is sent home may be a sign that the emergency department is understaffed or overcrowded. This may result in delays in treatment, increased suffering for those who wait, and unpleasant treatment environments.
