I had an ER doctor do something to me medically without informed or written consent. No consult was seen in the ER and I was not examined normally or asked to change into a gown. I was gotten rid of 2 1/2 hour after a LP and from what I understand tests take 2 days to come back. My records were falsified and an extensive cover up ensued. They concealed all blood work, change radiology reports and hid from my family what had been done to me medically and told them the condition that I was in was due to mental illness. They did this knowing what they had done to me medically has life threatening complications but they did not care. Intent to conceal damage as well so be cautious people in trusting the radiology reports are accurate or truthful.

Video tape everything to keep as evidence if records are falsified. Bring more than one witness with you. Be cautious with your interactions with anyone in this place.

I work at this hospital and am ashamed of how dirty it is. Most of the housekeeping staff do a very poor job, if anything at all. Management needs to step up and start supervising these staff members.

The staff have a poor attitude towards the patients. They would rather socialize! Dirt.. is the lest of your worries (the place is filthy.. However I would be more concerned about the nurses walking in and out of an isolation room with out scrubbing or even putting on protective garbs (some did not all) Then proceed to treat other patients. Patients who are unable to take care of themselves are not monitored (for hours). Even forgotten about by staff. There is a complete lack of care, organization and oversight! Only go here if you have no other choices!

Don't use this hospital. It is unclean and a danger to your health! A third world establishment! Many of the staff are very good providers, however there are some that treat their duty time, as a personal social club gathering, and ignore the urgent patient care needs and calls for assistance. The attitude by many towards the patients and visitors can be very patronizing. The required hourly checks on patients is not the standard. The hallways are litterd with equipment. A Fix! Immediately; Set minimum standards of performance and ramp up the quality and quantity of supervision of all staff performance to ensure service standards are met. Come out of the dark ages. Make Dartmouth General Hospital the leading health care centre!

I would not recommend going to this hospital. I lived in the area all of my life and as it was the closest option, that's where you had to go in an emergency. The reception (intake) seems stressed, over worked, and frustrated. You have to wait many hours before you get to the second waiting area, and then you'll wait some more. And, then you will wait some more.
