Ambulance Patient Offload Time (APOT)
The EMS Authority was mandated (Health and Safety Code 1797.120) to develop a statewide methodology for calculating and reporting ambulance patient offload times by a LEMSA. This statewide, standard methodology was based on input received from stakeholders, including but not limited to: hospitals, LEMSAs, public and private EMS providers.
