CIHI reports on length of stay for emergency department visits

CIHI reports on length of stay for emergency department visits in Ontario

Understanding Emergency Department Wait Times:
How Long Do People Spend in Emergency Departments in Ontario?
This report presents the latest data on how long patients spend in Ontario emergency departments (EDs) from the time they arrive until they are discharged.
The analysis focuses on variations in total time spent waiting for an initial physician assessment and total time spent in the ED.
Variations related to ED and patient characteristics-including by type of hospital/size of ED, whether patients were admitted or not, patients' scores on the Canadian Triage and Acuity Scale (CTAS) and geographic location-are presented.
