After implementing an improvement framework and process, the Unit found from a sample of 35 patients that the wait time in the waiting room was actually 17.3 minutes with a standard deviation of 3 minutes. If the staff tested the wait time at the .05 significance level, will the data support the idea the wait time exceeds the desired goal?
