This PDF “describes emergency department (ED) use by children, including how often they come, when they come, how long they wait and what happens at the end of their ED visit. It explores variations in ED use and wait times among Ontario’s local health integration networks (LHINs) and variations among different types of EDs. A comparison of children’s ED experiences to those of adults and seniors is also provided.”
