This FACT indicates the percentage of category 1 admissions from waiting lists for elective surgery in each state and territory. In Australia, at the time of being placed on the hospital’s waiting list in each state, it is common for a clinical assessment to be made to determine the urgency of the patient’s required elective surgery. A category 1 admission is for patients who have a chance of their condition deteriorating quickly, to the point where it may become an emergency within 30 days. The state/territory with the highest percentage is tied between Queensland at 39 percent. The state/territory with the lowest is New South Wales, at 24 percent, followed closely by Western Australia and South Australia, at 25 and 25.5 percent respectively.
