Casualty transit time for 100 adult walk-in patients at the university hospital of the West Indies.
The Casualty Department of the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI) has evolved in an ad hoc manner over the last decade, and questions regarding its appropriateness and effectiveness as an Emergency Department persist.
Given that the mean total time of 3 hr 46 min is not inordinately long in a public health system such as ours, the recommendation is being made for a modified coding and triage system to reduce time to first contact for more urgent cases.
