This FACT indicates the percentage of category 2 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 2 admission is for patients who have a chance of their condition causing some pain, dysfunction or disability within 90 days, but are not likely to deteriorate. According to statistics collected from 2013 and 2014, the state/territory with the highest percentage of category 2 admissions from waiting lists is the Northern Territory, at 48.5 percent. The state/territory with the lowest is New South Wales, at 33 percent.
