  1. Duration is in hour, minutes and seconds [hh:mm:ss]; z-scores are in parentheses. For nominal variables (e.g. in what room the patient would be examined or where he would be triaged to), the higher the z-score, the more a specific option was chosen (e.g. the more a specific triage outcome was chosen)
