Emergency department

This section shows data related to presentations (visits) to this hospital’s emergency department. Each visit is counted separately, so the number of presentations may not be equal to the number of people seen or treated by the emergency department if some people visited more than once. Here, ‘patients’ refers to the number of presentations.

This section shows the percentage of patients arriving at this hospital’s emergency department who commenced treatment within the maximum recommended time. Recommended maximum waiting times vary depending on the urgency of the patient's need for care (their triage category), as assessed by a healthcare professional in the emergency department. The five triage categories are called: Resuscitation, Emergency, Urgent, Semi-urgent and Non-urgent.
