Emergency Department Care
Timely and effective care in hospital emergency departments is essential for good patient outcomes. Delays before receiving care in the emergency department can reduce the quality of care and increase risks and discomfort for patients with serious illnesses or injuries. Waiting times at different hospitals can vary widely, depending on the number of patients seen, staffing levels, efficiency, admitting procedures, or the availability of inpatient beds. The information below shows how quickly the hospitals you selected treat patients who come to the hospital emergency department, compared to the average hospital in the U. S.
