Quality Measures Emergency Arrival to Departure Time through Q3 2019

Quality Measures

Median Time from ED Arrival to ED Departure This measure looks at the average time patients are in the emergency department (ED).  Longer wait times may be a sign the ED is understaffed or overcrowded.  This may result in delays in treatment, increased suffering and potentially poor patient outcomes.   The average visit time in Wisconsin is 117 minutes.  Upland Hills Health has an average of 104 minutes and is performing better than the Wisconsin average in minutes.

WI Average Minutes 117 117 117 117 117    

*Note: this measure is no longer collected from Wisconsin hospitals

EKG Within 10 Minutes of Arrival
This measure looks at all patients who arrived at the ED with a final diagnosis of a STEMI heart attack (complete blockage of artery and most deadly). An EKG should be obtained and interpreted within 10 minutes of arrival so transfer to a hospital that is capable of performing a heart procedure to open up the blocked artery can occur rapidly. Reducing the door to EKG interval helps reduce the total time the heart is without oxygen improving patient outcomes. Upland Hills Health has a target for an EKG to be performed within 10 minutes of arrival for patients who are having a STEMI. UHH has been obtaining that first EKG in an average of less than 1 minute 100% of the time.
