Patient Pathways Through This ER

After a patient arrives at the emergency room, they are typically seen by a doctor and then either sent home or admitted to the hospital and taken to a room. A small percentage of patients leave without being seen at all. The chart below shows on average how long each of these pathways take. Lower numbers are better, and all times refer to the average length of time people waited. Find out more »

Detailed Quality Measures

Here is a more in depth look at each quality measure, compared to state and national averages for hospitals with high volumes. Experts caution that very small differences between hospitals for a given measure are unlikely to correspond to noticeable differences in the real world.

Notes: "Average time" refers to the median waiting time (the midpoint of all patients' waiting times). References to "doctor" indicate a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant. CMS reports the CT scan quality measure as the percentage of patients who received a scan within 45 minutes. We have reversed that measure so that all measures follow a "lower is better" pattern.

    Check in nurse was very rude. I waited 3 hours and asked twice (an hour and a half apart) how long did she think it would be before I was seen she chose to tell me that I had only been there 2 and a half hours. Which in my opinion was still entirely too long. I understand triage but people with colds were going back before I was. I was in terrible pain and still am. I'm going to Shoals or Hellen Keller. Never going back to ECM ever.

    Dr Lumpkin has formed her opinion about u in the first 10_15sec without.doing proper test. The only diagnoses u can expect is what her "gut" tells her. She wants to show her colleagues how fast and how few test she had to do, so unless u like throwing the dice against. The wall with ur health don't go to E.C.M.
