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.

And on top of that, there’s four folks ahead of me and one who came in after me that needs more attention than I do. This place is terrible. My Third experience here and my first for myself and every time I’ve had issues and 4 plus hours of wait. Folks are rude too.. makes sense why rude people are a fan of this place. " - Duston
