Wait Times are Worse at the ED, says Rochester Emergency Medicine Chair

October 15, 2021

Dr. Keith Grams, the head of Rochester Regional Health’s emergency medicine, is addressing wait times at its hospitals. According to Dr. Grams, the backlog of people waiting in the emergency department has worsened over the last few weeks because of a couple of factors. He stated: “Rochester Regional emergency departments are experiencing significant more overcapacity than we have in the past. We do have patients waiting on hospital beds at times and, unfortunately, that wait can be extended. To our knowledge, this is not unique to Rochester Regional. This is definitely a challenge being felt at least in the upstate region that we know of.”
