Worst emergency room I have experienced. Not one doctor has seen my son over 6 hours waiting. This hospital should be better prepared for holiday coverage. What a shame !

My mom was admitted to this hospital and it was a nightmare, not only was there a mouse running around but the staff are not easy to work with. The nurses were very rude. VERY bad experience and dirty hospital.

Horrible experience for my adult daughter who came in with suspected appendicitis. She was bleeding, had tenderness and much abdominal pain, and slight fever. Although she was supposed to be a fast track patient she was in the hallway and it took about 5 hours for an ultrasound to find 'inconclusive' evidence of appendicitis and then another 3 hours for a CT scan to find 'inconclusive' evidence of appendicitis. All this time she saw a doctor once and was treated like a nuisance by the ER nurses who didn't order pain meds (don't know what is going on yet) although she was in lots of pain. In fact the nurses ignored her, and me, when I asked about giving pain meds, and decided to move her bed further away down the hall so they didn't have to deal with us. All we could hear was the nurses laughing and giggling at the nurses station about something or another. Didn't sound professional. Finally the lab results showed ruptured bleeding cyst on her ovary, and a severe urinary track infection. They gave her a 'general' antibiotic and she was good to go...what?!!!!

A hospital can be old and still provide excellent accommodation and care, something that is sorely lacking here. I endured four days in this hospital after major surgery and while I have nothing but praise for the skill of my surgeon and the rest of the OR team, the same cannot be said of the rest of the staff. With the exception of one nurse who was on the floor the first night of my stay after surgery, everyone else I encountered seemed to be perpetually annoyed and seemingly more concerned with making sure nothing got in the way of her break. From blood running down my arm, unchecked, after being given a needle, to pills left on my bed table without water in the jug, to some guy taking blood from my arm when I was half asleep and not putting pressure on the site resulting in a baseball sized bruise, almost every encounter was awful. The final straw was when I was left clinging to the door jamb about 3 in the morning, too dizzy to get back to the bed and the orderly who answered my rings after 5 minutes, came in and went back out leaving me there while she asked someone what to do. No thought as to maybe helping me back to bed first especially when I told her that I felt like I was about to pass out. This place is a law suit waiting to happen.

My husband was in omth for three months after a stroke and all in all a horrible experience.All the staff does especially the physiotherapists and OT,s and SLP,s is to try to scare the patients of dying if they try to do anything on their own and the nurses don't come to help .It was a night mare. It is a very dismal picture.

I was admitted to Emerge on 2 different occasions and in the 2 times I have to say it is concerning to see how fast they respond if it's shortage of staff please do hire more people if it's poor equipment and lack of basics then ask for more bugeting but this can not be the standards of a hospital in it's emergency department. I'm surprised to have experienced this in a city like Oakville.

I was in Emerge Friday night with senere abdominal pain. My familly Doctor rushed me there strait from his office. All I heard was overtime... he had no business sending me there. Constant yelling at patients from the triage nurse. Can't you see we are busy etc... When I requested to see the ombustman , the head nurse escorted me to a private room etc... requetsed that I withdraw complaint on staff etc... 14 hours later the third doctor came in and asked me again the reason for me being at emerge. When I requested that I had a exray around 2 a.m. etc... she indicated taht there was no paper work etc... 14 hours later $25.00 parking in vistors..... and the result is back to my familly Doctor who will do ??? This has been going on since 6 months ago. Why the new hospital. It will not improve anything. Why would mangement hier a new that would yell and be so abrupt with sick older seniors. I will be persuing this matter to the minister of health.

I went to emergency with severe abdominal and middle back pain that had been going on for 5 days, this is related to gallbladder stones and pancreas. I waited - WAITED 7 hours (in the fast track section HAHA) before anyone even looked at me, once they did the nurse was arguing with the doctor that it was now 7pm and they could not pay overtime as the ultra sound techs left at 7pm - i stuck my head out and yelled at her - they left me waiting for over 7 hours and if she thought I was coming back tomorrow she was out of her mind - so they did the ultra sound at 7:30pm I was told to wait about 1/2 hour for results -at 9:45pm the doctor came out said yes the gallbladder most definately has to be removed, but being in agony for 5 plus days does not count as an emergency and sent me home with a painkiller. So after 9 hours I got a tylenol - it was absolutely the worst experience ever in a any hospitlal

A family member has been there and it feels like they just want to push people through the process and out the door. Too many rude and indifferent/not caring staff. I know it is a tough job; but it seems too many are burnt out or are there for the money.
