The patients' rooms were not cleaned once during my mother's 8 day stay. I was very dissapointed. My father was at tbe general a few months prior and I was surprisingly more pleased with the Hamilton General than with St. Joes.

The best hospital in the area, great staff, the only alternative to HHSC. I was born here, and hope to die here. Spirituality counts

I went for a routine blood test, and the person who took my blood first wiped off the vein with an alcohol, then tapped the vein with her dirty finger before sticking in the needle. Oops! Yes, she gave me blood poisoning. Almost killed me. Because I went there for a routine blood test. I went in healthy and came out sick. I had to go there for abdominal surgery, one year, and the nurse said that if I couldn't get gas out, that I should just strain and push as I wouldn't be released until it was out. I did as she said and popped all my stitches and have had to have, and will require, additional surgery to repair the resulting damage. She hauled me out of bed an hour after surgery to make me remake it because she "hated" having bathrobes used as blankets. Wore perfume in the perfume-free ward (I'm allergic), wouldn't explain the reason for a particular pain, just kept telling me to stop "whining", which didn't stop the anxiety any. The volunteers are lovely but the place is hell.

The nursing staff must have all been in the bottom of their classes. I was in hospital for 2 weeks and had the worst time trying to sleep. I mentioned this to a nurse when she asked how I was and she laughed derisively in my face and said loudly "You don't come to a hospital to sleep!!" I was stunned by her disgusting attitude and was speechless, but I wish I'd said, "And you don't come to a hospital to be DEPRIVED of sleep either!" Sleep deprivation has been proven again and again to be DANGEROUS to one's physical and mental health, yet she acted like I was crazy to even mention it. At 11pm every night the hallway lights would be dimmed(which was nice)but I swear all they needed was a disco ball to drop from the ceiling over the nurse's station to complete the mood. They would start talking and laughing even louder than during the day for some reason-it was absolutely bizarre. They were childish and uncaring for those two weeks and I never want to go back. Others have said the same.
