Emergency Department status
How busy is the RCH Emergency Department right now?
Everyone who attends the ED wants to be seen quickly and we will always try to complete your care as soon as we can.
Unfortunately, there are times when we are particularly busy, and significant waiting times can occur.
If your child has an urgent problem, you will always have a very short wait time, or may avoid the waiting room altogether.
We give priority to children with the most urgent healthcare needs.
If you are required to spend any length of time in the waiting room, this is because your child's condition is less urgent. We appreciate this can be stressful and frustrating. We can often commence your child's treatment and provide advice and information while you are waiting.
