How Emergency Room Wait Times affect Patient Satisfaction
Time is of the essence when it comes to emergency room care, and it affects a patient’s level of satisfaction. At the time where waiting times are at the worst, wait times are now seen as the “forgotten premise of healthcare.”
The longer the wait for patients, the more time they’ll be able to conclude something negative about the emergency room staff. A study by the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health states that “patient satisfaction can be conceptualized as the difference between a patient’s perceptions and their expectations.” This means that patients already have an expectation on their wait time, but this also affects their perception on how the emergency room is being run and how good the facilities are.
The same study says, “interventions to decrease perception of wait times and increase the perception of service being provided, when combined with management of patient expectations, can improve patient satisfaction.”
