Average time patients spent in the Emergency Department before being sent home


This indicator focuses on patients who were sent home after being treated in the Emergency Department, not those who were admitted to the hospital as inpatients after visiting the Emergency Department. It measures the average time these patients spent in the Emergency Department - from the minute they arrived to the time they went home.

January 2012 - September 2012 data

For the above graph: Higher ↑ performance is better.

Why is there only one graph?

Because this is a new measure, only a limited amount of data is available. As past data on this measure becomes available, we will add another graph showing our performance over time.
