Washington Hospital Quality
A service of the Washington State Hospital Association

What is this?

The time it took from with a person got the emergency department before they saw a doctor or nurse. Lower is better.

Why this matters?

Delays in being seen by a healthcare provider may be a sign that the emergency department is understaffed or overcrowded. This may result in delays in treatment or lower quality care. In addition, long delays can create more stress for patients and families.
