Guide for use:
For the Emergency Department the date of triage is recorded separately. In an Emergency Department the service event commences when the medical officer (or, if no medical officer is on duty in the Emergency Department, a treating nurse) provides treatment or diagnostic service. The commencement of a service event does not include contact associated with triage.

This metadata item supports the provision of unit record and/or summary level data by state and territory health authorities as part of the Emergency Department Waiting Times National Minimum Data Set.
