These are the average time from entering the ER to being admitted to the hospital by a doctor. In a busy ER, patients will be seen by a triage nurse first. Then the wait time will vary by severity, and how busy the ER is at the time of day. Patients with less serious problems could have substantially longer waits.

There is a 48 minute wait difference between the fastest Memphis emergency room and the slowest.

: "Went to Bayhealth Milford yesterday. Got there at 3:30 pm for a bowel obstruction, severe abdominal pain 8/10, chest pain 5/10, nausea. Saw the triage nurse. Wasn’t brought back until after 11 pm to fast track. Never had anyone with chest pain and an implanted device go to a fast track, revitalized, rechecked, or otherwise approached. Nothing had been addressed until well after being brought back. When I arrived at the hospital, I checked Hospitalstats, and they indicated the wait time was a 2:55 minutes. I worked as an RN in their facilities for more than 15 years in their ER and other It took about 8 hours to go back. Never saw an employee come into the waiting room to check on anyone else. VERY dissatisfied. God bless the other patients, especially really sick ones." - Ray
