After 7 surgeries for hydrocephalus I have decided NEVER to return to this 'Hospital of Horrors'. My last shunt revision was unsuccessful and my neurosurgeon's secretary has given me the brush-off one time too many. The nursing staff as a whole are incompetent and sadistic, and the 'Charge Nurse' should be FIRED. Personal belongings go missing without a thought to the patient, the noise level during the night is comparable to a frat party and meds are NEVER given correctly. With the exception of very few, every person I was forced to deal with should find another profession.

I dislocated my knee and I was in a great pain. It took me 8 hours to see a doctor who visited me for 5 minutes. He said I want to take a look at your file. He went for another two hours. Imagine me being in pain, sitting in the wheelchair for almost 10 hours. Then I was fed up and asked a nurse how long more should I wait? You know what I received back? She said we are very busy today and you should understand... Are these guys crazy? Increase your freaking staffs and doctors. I am in emergency section of a hospital for god's sake. Do they really believe I with that amount of pain and after 10 hours of wait should UNDERSTAND them? that's ridiculous. And after 10 hours do you know what the doctor said? Here is a brochure for a knee injury clinic. The government seems to be quick and on time when they are demanding taxes but when they want to provide a service one should cry for it. Terrible experience. Won't ever bother to go there again.

I was in the Catheter Lab arriving from Lethbridge for a Angiogram/Angiplasty. I was having a chest pain/pressure during my stay and was on Nitro, however there were a few emergency cases that needed to be taken ahead of me. I arrived at the cath lab at 10:30 and did not get into the lab until 4. I understand that emergency cases take priority. Dr. Knutson when he visited another patient he came to me and introduced himself and was really polite. I ended up having angioplasty, so I had to stay overnight, the staff on the floor were very polite and helpful. Great Job!!!

Was a patient here for 5 months and then again for 2 weeks and then yet again for a week on units 21,22,26P and 23 I think and the nurses and doctors were ignorant, rude and not helpful. The place was a dump and i feel they didn't care about the patients.

I spent the better part of 2 months on the Cardiac ward, so my experience is skewed as I only saw and interacted with a single aspect of the Foothills Hospital. However that being said, I have to rate my experience as being wonderful, I was very weak and helpless my first 6 weeks there, being someone who has always been self reliant, it was very hard to get use to being unable to even do basic things for myself. The care, compassion and patience I was shown by the staff on the Cardiac ward was amazing. They made what could have been a unbearable experience bearable, and I will always appreciate the kindness and professionalism I was treated with while there.

I was in for 21 days, and then back for 7 days Dr, and nurses were great. Only one nurse in Er did not use rubber gloves when taking blood. She also had long fingernails. There are 48 million germs on the average humans finger tips. She was the exception, and I called her on it. Old school was the reply. Then she should get the hell out of the medical profession. Its the after care that sucks. GP cant get it straight. You have to be very proactive once out of the hospital or you will die. keep asking and demanding till you get what is necessary.
