Queensland Health provides free public hospital emergency care across the state
to people who are seriously injured or ill and need treatment.
This page tells you how busy a hospital emergency department (ED) is, and gives
information on its performance. For further information about emergency departments

When a person arrives at an ED for treatment, a qualified triage nurse assesses
how urgent their condition is and assigns a category according to the Australasian
Triage Scale. There are five triage categories, where 1 is most urgent and 5 is
least urgent. The triage system ensures that people most in need of care are treated first. Patients
are seen in order of medical priority and not in order of arrival at the hospital.
