This data is collected from the dispatch data of Riverside County's primary contracted 9-1-1 medical response provider, American Medical Response (AMR). It is the interval that ambulance crews and patients are retained past the initial 30 minutes after arrival to the Emergency Department. This data is used to evaluate hospital Emergency Department compliance with the offload standard and evaluate how the impact of offload delays may be affecting the 9-1-1 response system.
