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 251 minute wait difference between the fastest Los Angeles emergency room and the slowest.

: "Had a finger tip cut off in kitchen accident. Lots of bleeding. Waited 4+ hours. Bled on the chairs. They have signs that say "triage" but it was first come, first served. I'm no doctor but all others ahead in ER line seemed fine, as if they in DMV line. A guy said someone died waiting last week. The wait room was filthy - felt like third world country infrastructure. The staff seemed disinterested is the polite description. Gtown hospital has $100Ms for new buildings but cant deliver the very basics of care, as in stop the bleeding. How does this happen in Georgetown?" - Jac
