Admission from ED to Acute

    Good Morning,

    When a patient is admitted to Acute from your ED department, do you use the admission time as the time of the order or the time the patient actually gets to Acute? At this time we go by the time on the admission order, but the patient could still be in the ED for hours waiting for a bed.

    Thank you,
    Amanda
