Emergencies: Quebec launches a new information tool

Avant de se rendre à l'urgence, les premiers répondants jouent un rôle important.

Îles de la Madeleine

Quebec City launched a new tool last week that provides real-time information on the situation in the province’s emergency rooms.

Citizens can consult hourly updated indicators on the number of people waiting to see a doctor, the occupancy rate of stretchers and the number of people in the emergency room.

The average length of stay of users on a stretcher or in the waiting room is also displayed.

In addition to the provincial picture, all information is presented by region as well as by healthcare facility.

As of the afternoon of February 3, the site listed six people in the Archipelago Hospital emergency room, a zero occupancy rate for stretchers and an average waiting time of 2.5 hours.

According to data provided by the CISSS des Îles, the situation in the local emergency room has remained stable and positive in recent years.

Between 2020 and 2022, an average of 85% of clients were medically treated within two hours.

Stretchers have been occupied on average 50% of the time in the last four years.

In addition, the Archipelago Hospital’s daily record stands out from other health care facilities in the region in terms of length of stay in the waiting room and on a stretcher.

As of February 3, emergency rooms in the Gaspé Peninsula and the Islands had an average occupancy rate of approximately 55%, compared with hospital overcapacity in most other regions.
