Why would wait times ever change?

Wait times are based off of several factors in the ED.

The estimated wait times that are provided to patients are calculated using several different data points, such as:

  • Number of patients being treated in the ED
  • Average acuity of patients
  • ED room & bed availability
  • Pending test results

These estimated wait times are subject to change, as they are calculated several times per minute. While we strive to ensure that patients do not experience constantly shifting wait times, there are occasions where a patient may see their wait time change in response to the conditions in the ED.
