BehindTheMedspeak: How efficient is your ER?


Oh, the stories I could tell you... but you wouldn't believe them.

Trust me on this: I'm a doctor.

But I digress.

From the Wall Street Journal:


Crowded ERs and long wait times aren't just annoying — they have bad effects for patient outcomes and satisfactions."

The tables show the median time spent in emergency rooms, in minutes, by patients who were admitted (national median: 279 minutes) and by patients who were discharged (national median: 138 minutes).

You can search for a hospital by name, or sort the hospitals by state or any other category by clicking on each column header.


Up top, data for Podunkville's two hospitals.

NHS, read it and weep.
