About this report

This report shows the number of triage Category 5 patients treated in emergency departments who were treated within two hours as a percentage of the total number of triage Category 5 patients treated. It excludes those who left at their own risk without treatment, those who left after clinical advice regarding treatment options and those who were dead on arrival.  Totals are for all Victorian public hospitals with an emergency department.

Understanding triage

All patients attending emergency departments are ‘triaged’ or assessed for urgency. The first priority is to treat the most urgent patients. There are five triage categories that have been established by the Australasian College of Emergency Medicine. These categories indicate the desirable time within which patients should be treated.
