Ratings for Lions Gate Hospital
I had my very first surgery experience last week - all I can say is that it was a excellent experience - ALL the staff were caring, friendly, attentative - I felt well cared for before, durig and after my back surgery. I only had a one night stay, but it was really top notch (except for the food -dinner/breakfast was only a 3/10 - how do you make hot coffee with warm water). I witnessed first hand an awesome, committed health care staff.

Please do not go to this hospital. I took my 7 year old daughter there after she fell and fractured her arm. She was sobbing in pain. After waiting for 2 hours, I gently asked a triage nurse if she knew how many people were ahead of us in line and she stated "DON'T ASK ME BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW." It was horrible. I sat with small children, who were cold and hungry, late into the night and felt so helpless. I finally took my kids home, cleaned my daughter's wounds, wrapped her arm in a tensor bandage, and took her to the Children's Hospital the next morning. The wait was long there as well, but the staff were at least kind and professional.

The knowledge of the staff (doctors and nurses) is very low. For normal people they are very good. As soon you have knowledge in medicine, you can see how catastrophic is this hospital.

Unfortunately, I've had to the hospital more frequently than I had bargained for.
Right from the admission to care the services have been outstanding. Especially the nursing staff on the 6th floor east tower were amazing and kind.
Dr J . Smith with her wonderful bedside manner certainly contributed to my recovery.

I had a great experience at Lions Gate Hospital Emergency. I didn't have to wait long and received top care from nurses and the doctor in charge. We are so lucky in this country; seeing all these complaints is discouraging.

Nurses always standing around chatting, no doctors. Go to St Paul's in Vancouver for anything serious, I could see more people die at lions gate

I went to Lions Gate Hospital yesterday with my son who was having Kidney stones and in pain. The first day in the ER was okay. We waited about 4 hours. He received blood work and urine sample and was told to come back the next day to get an ultrasound and then go back to ER for results. Hear is my problem . THERE WAS NO PRIVACY FOR ANYONE. They traige you where everyone can hear about your probems. They come out to the waiting room where everyone can hear your results. The doctor the first day at least took us aside while he discussed my sons tessicles. The second day the doctor rolled out his computer on a lovely stand and in the middle of the waiting room decussed my sons kidneys and testicles. I would never give money to this hospital unless I knew it was going to re address the lack of privacy in the ER. The was no room for people and the only ones who went into the closed arrives was on a stretcher. I u;nderstand it depends on how sick we are. At least if the triage area had some privacy and a room to discuss results should be a minimum. Dont you think?

The emergency staff including the pissy clerks need an attitude adjustment. Beyond rude.

I was taken to the Emergency by Ambulance after I was hit by a car. I was left at the door step for
a long time before I was moved into the Emergency ward, where I was left unattended for an additional two hours. I had the most excruciating pain in my back so I was constantly moaning.
Nobody bothered to stop by . I begged one of the nurses who was passing by to see the doctor
so I can get medication for the unbearable pain, I was told they have other patients who had to be attended to more urgently. I asked her who made the assessment that my situation was not as urgent as others !While I was left unattended for long period of time, one of the nurses was constantly talking & laughing loud with another patient , There was another old lady beside me who wanted to go to the bathroom begging for their assistance, to whom they did not respond.
I was truly appalled by their rudeness, as well as arrogance. I had asked for a glass of water which
I did not get for several hours until my daughter showed up, which at that point they told her where she has to go & get it. I have lived on the North shore for over thirty 33 years and occasionally involved in fundraising for this hospital. but now I realize what we need urgently
a top management team who could check their standard of nursing care by sending some people
unanimously and see how people are treated there ( worse than third world countries )
This was the worse day of my life not only because of my condition, but mostly because of
humiliation and disrespect I received at this hospital. I am still suffering and experience a lot of pain. But I am writing this review hoping the management becomes aware of the problem regarding the nursing staff at the ER department and try to make some improvement .
