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 361 minute wait difference between the fastest ER in Los Angeles and the slowest.

: "Been here 6 hours in the er waiting to been seen. Still not taking out back. This visit is for my elderly mom. No food no drink and none of her meds that are due. This is BS. This happened here back in November as well. 6 hours for an emergency room is ridiculous. " - Wendy

: "I am here at CNMC. It has been so far my worst nightmare. It took us almost 6.5 hour and for my toddler who has just an injury to his elbow
And just for the doctor to come and see it’s taking forever. It’s not even a specialist care that he is needing. This is very poor and unfortunately dysfunctional care they have. "

: "On 7/5/2021 my cousin Pearlette Moore waited 20 hours to be seen at umc hospital in Vegas to see if she had covid 19 & for an asthma pump. This evil place gave her a non diabetic to make her have breathing issues, took her to the Icu three times. She came out of the ICU 7/19/2021 & on 7/20/2021 a fr angelica honsberg told her that her numbers ate going up which after my cousin's murder blamed on covid that numbers going up means white blood cell count. Because Pearlette's numbers were going up this doctor coerced my trusting cousin onto a ventilator 7/20/2021 just one day after leaving the ICU then on 7/21/2021 put her in a PARALYTIC coma. I confronted by phone a risk manager named shaunda phillips & told her why are they doing all of this when Peatlette has a POA her daughter who wants to make medical decisions for her own mom. Shaunda denied that Pearlette had a POA then I told her that Pearlette fulfilled out the PIA on 7/19/2021 then shaunda said oh yeah Pearlette did have a POA but it didn't count because we weren't letting witnesses in due to covid. The daughter Larrisha Moore tried to gave her parents taken toSummerlin hospital where a JoAnn Bates accepted them umc/shaunda phillips denied the transfer twice. Then an illegal DNR was placed on Pearlette by a Dr deepak sharma who works for the heart Institute & a Dr payne, no matter how much the daughter pleaded it was never removed. I will never for as long as I live forget nurses yelling to Pearlette's daughter unplug her, you're making her suffer she's dying anyway! Then in the next btmreath saying your mother is dying because she can't urinate and is too weak for dialysis with a BP of 55/34 yet this is not on her murder certficate. Pearlette told me that she was given insulin to treat her civid which was moderate & she told me she had pneumonia & covid 19 yet her murder certficate says 1)ARDS 2)Covid pneumonia 3) covid 19 4) high blood pressure 5) severe kidney injury 6)obesity Pearlette weighed 230 at 5'7. After killing my cousin umc demanded no autopsy although the daughter requested one yet coroners listened to umc staff. After killing my cousin Pearlette Moore umc without permission sent my cousin to Davis funeral home whom they're contracted with & we were NEVER allowed to ID her body. Umc also falsely imprisoned Larry Moore Pearlette's husband who woke from FORCED ventilation 7/17/2021 yet was not released until I went to umc's Facebook page & in the comments told how they killed Pearlette Moore & were trying to kill her husband too fir civud 19 funding the Cares act. After I kept commenting on their page he was suddenly released late September to a better hospital who took out his unnecessary trachea that I recommended to umc doctors since they would not let this poor man totally off of the forced ventilation. After getting out, he Larry Moore told us how nurses said they would kill him on 9/11/2021 & he told them go ahead he's not scared. Larry Moore attempted to get his & his wife's medical racirs umc hispital told him that his were too long & that if he wanted his wife's to get a subpoena the lawyer we had let the case go because umc wouldn't let the records go & Larry Moore had to work to pay bills after umc made him lose his firmer job with false imprisonment & because he now has lung damage frim FORCED ventilation. When he trues to tell lawyers what happened to him they tell him umc didn't try to kill you they saved your life. I can not make this story up. I got the medical examiners board involved,investigator Ernesto Duaz is rude & protecting these kilker doctors. It took umc hospital 6 whole months yo give him Pearlette's medical records & he said nothing about it. This 1 star hospital has gotten away with killing my cousin and nobody cares not the police, fbi, senators etc.umc hospital in Vegas needs to be closed & shaunda phillips and the doctors & nurses arrested for murder and attempted murder blamed in covid. Have a blessed day." - Alberta

: "Went to the emergency room at 3:00 a.m. with an injury to my elbow left at 7:30 a.m. from the waiting room four and a half hours to wait it's just too long Christiana Hospital Emergency in Elkton Maryland needs to get more help or schedule more people four and a half hour wait time is ridiculous" - Steve
