To be fair, I was at the Emergency which was under renovation. Very uncomfortable, broken recliners that didn't recline - sitting in those for many, many hours for IV. Their cafeteria doesn't take debit cards, so if you go, be prepared with foods. Rooms were warm for the nurses but cold for the patients who are just sitting, so dress well in layers. Had to tell my story in details to at least 5 different people, triage nurse, med student, intern, Dr. and as shifts changed, to the final check out Dr. That's all very frustrating when you're sick and exhausted and can barely think straight. The worst part was all that waiting. At the moment, I certainly don't think I'd go back if I got sick again soon!! All that said, I found them to be thorough, and I did leave there feeling much better after many tests over many hours. Staff and Dr's were friendly. My experience might have been different if Renovations were not going on. So this review is specific to this time period.

Doctor saw my wife who was having stomach pains, burping and coughing. Obvious case of gastric reflux but to be safe they wanted to do a barium swallow to image the esophagus. Doctor must not have been paying attention because she prescribed a bariumENEMA instead. She called a few days later to correct the mistake, but it could have been too late.

A very good hospital that saved my life when I had a fistula a few years ago.

I have been with St. Mary's Hospital since the late 1970s. I have had a few ups and downs but nothing major. I have been blessed to have good and compassionate nurses. How well I remember my dear Doctor Burman who brought our Joshua into the world (1984, December). And only last year I had arthroplasty surgery with Dr. Moreno Morelli (whom I highly, highly recommend). I am thankful for Canada's health care knowing that in most parts of the world health care is substandard or not existing at all. That's my take! Laura Lee Reid

My father had to stay in this hospital for three months. They misdiagnosed him and sent him to a rehab centre where he was immediately sent back to the hospital because he was going into kidney failure. He was finally medically stable but after three months lost his ability to swallow. NO one told us of the change in his condition and the doctors decided no to give him intravenous fluids leading him to die of dehydration. We were never informed of this decision and when I went to visit my father I was shocked by his condition (he had been 3 days with no food or water). Had to ask several questions before finding out what was going on. The most caring person there was the cleaning lady.

I had a surgery there which turned out to be a nightmare - had to get 2 general
anesthesia during the same day because the first surgery ended upmin a huge hemorragia after they send me back at home. Second surgery, they forgot something inside me that came out 2 weeks after my surgery. I basically could have died. When I confronted the surgeon, she could barely look at me. They never apologized. St Mary refused to give me some money for all that. I strongly advise people NOT to go in that hospital.
