a Emergency department patients ≥ 18 years, mean length of stay with 95% confidence interval error bars for normal, high and critical operational levels for the period 2010–2015, n = 179,989. Normal operational level: < 25 / < 35 patients in the ED (2010/ 2011–2015). High operational level: 25–34/ 35–44 patients in the ED (2010/ 2011–2015). Critical operational level: ≥ 35/ ≥ 45 patients in the ED (2010/ 2011–2015). b Emergency department patients ≥ 18 years, mean length of stay with 95% confidence interval error bars for normal, high and critical operational levels per specialty (internal medicine, surgery, orthopaedics and neurology), n = 179,989. Normal operational level: < 25 / < 35 patients in the ED (2010/ 2011–2015). High operational level: 25–34/ 35–44 patients in the ED (2010/ 2011–2015). Critical operational level: ≥ 35/ ≥ 45 patients in the ED (2010/ 2011–2015)
