Hospitals Work towards Reducing Emergency Room Wait Time

By Sara Lee Kessler

At Saint Clare’s emergency room in Denville patients are typically seen within a half hour of their arrival in the emergency department.  It’s part of the hospital’s initiative to reduce patient waiting times and improve patient care. Saint Clare’s is focusing on emergency room time management by utilizing technology.  A would-be patient can visit the hospital’s website or text ERWAIT to 77950 to find out the waiting time in the hospitals Dover, Denville, and Sussex locations before ever leaving home.
