St. Rose E.R. Wait Times Posted Online

In its continuing effort to be transparent and to empower patients with information that will assist them in choosing the hospital that is best for them, St. Rose Dominican Hospitals now posts its emergency room wait times online.

While many local hospitals track how long it takes a person to be triaged (see a nurse), at St. Rose Dominican Hospitals, the posted times average the time it took a patient to actually see a doctor in the previous hour. Each campus has its own unique time posted on the website.

“Long waits in emergency rooms are among the top complaints of healthcare consumers. St. Rose is committed to providing consumers information so they can make the healthcare choices that are best for them and their families,” said Rod A. Davis, president, St. Rose Dominican Hospitals.

The emergency room wait times are posted at http://www.strosehospitals.org/ER, are also accessible from the main page of the hospital’s website (strosehospitals.org), and can be viewed via smart phones. Healthcare consumers are reminded that these times are approximate and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival due to the fast-changing nature of emergency room environments. If it is a critical situation, consumers should call 9-1-1.
