How We Calculate Your ER Wait
Porter’s ER wait times represent a one-hour rolling average, updated every 15 minutes. Wait times are defined as the time you check in at the front desk until the time you’re greeted by a qualified, assigned medical professional. Patients are triaged at arrival and seen in priority order based on presenting complaints and reason for visit. A qualified medical professional is defined as a Doctor of Medicine (MD), a Doctor of Osteopathy (DO), a Physician’s Assistant (PA) or an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP).
