Ratings for Lions Gate Hospital
After three back to back visits, I can't say enough about the staff & facilities at LGH. A great team of people running a system that kept me in the right place at the right time, my prescriptions were all spot on, and the food wasn't all that horrible. With so many visits, I have listened to a lot of others situations there, and I must say some patients are spoiled in this real time, instant gratification world. Hospitals are not an instant drive through situation. Save your impatience for your baristas & grocery stores check out clerks, the staff at Lions Gate do a wonderful job. I know I chit chat at work, I try to be social with my coworkers... now try and do that when there is nothing but pain and suffering around you. Thank you LGH Staff for 3 stressful, but smooth visits. Your care and attention to me and all others around me was incredible.

Dr Lim is a very bad doctor who has had his licence taken away. he gave me a mix of olanzapine and ativan which is a A Major Drug Interaction which caused severe blackouts which he said he didn't believe but that the Pharmacists said is common knowledge. he also called me names saying i was beyond schizophrenic and I had to grow up and be a man because i was costing the taxpayers 1200. a day

The hospital is crowded the cleaning staff barely clean the floor fixtures etc. Nurses don't seem to care are slow to respond or don't show up at all

We have had the same awful experiences that most other patients have had... My only recommendation is that if you have any cardiac problems get to St. Pauls.. they are the cardiac experts and the care is extremely helpful, caring and professional... Maybe LGH ED staff could do some shifts at either St. Pauls or VGH to get some pointers on how to treat the public with respect and dignity... LGH should be ashamed of themselves... The ED nurses and docs should not chit chat and actually pay attention to their patients, some of which have been waiting 8 - 12 hours to be seen... The north shore has grown this hospital is too small. We need an urgent care center...

I just had the same kind of negative experience in the ER that several others are complaining about: pissy unit clerk, uncaring, loutish nurses chatting about their diets to ambulance attendants, and then there's the fact that they insist you sit on the hard chairs in the hallway, the ones with no arm rests.
When you're feverish and exhausted from abdominal pain, feeling weak and nauseated, it's easier to be in the soft, upholstered waiting room chairs for that 4 hour wait but no, that's not allowed.
Now, here's why nothing changes. They're all unionized, they can't be fired, and as we all know there's been a nursing shortage for about the last 100 yrs or so and guess what? The hospitals and docs are so well-insured thanks to our tax dollars (see Canadian Medical Protective Association) so this means no one is accountable. This leaves only one solution left and it's in your coat pocket: film the bastards undercover.
NOTHING LIKE BEING ON CAMERA TO GIVE THOSE NURSES INCENTIVE TO CLEAN UP THEIR ACT. Always find out who the charge nurse is; if she's the BOD (bitch on duty) then chances are those under her will follow suit, making the whole place foul.
You're going into the emergency department like we all do, assuming the best. Don't. Take your camera with you and you'll be surprised just like we were.

Hate to leave comments but after having read the past comments I must add that I will get to VGH somehow even if it takes my life before I enter the emergency room of Lionsgate again. I had spent 5 hours there Feb. 7th 2016 & finally diagnosed with diventiculitus. Sent home with prescriptions for cipro & flagyl. Took the Cipro & went to take a shower before having the flagyl with food. Just a few minutes into my shower I was getting the worst pain in uper right chest into back I had ever felt. Came out of the shower & feel to the floor & could not move. My husband called a ambulance & I was transported back to Lionsgate. Was put in a hall for over 4 fours without a nurse or anyone saying a thing to me. My husband finally insisted on a nurse getting me a ECG because I have had a small prior heart attack & the nurse just yelled at him & said will that make you happy??!! Most unkind or professional staff I have ever seen! When I did finally saw a Dr. he really did not have much information except for the paramedic who had checked me & had explained the pain in the manner he should have. He even came & checked on me on after another run & could not believe no one had attended me! I know the Dr had been busy but if he had really looked at the paramedics notes I do not think he would have filled me with another antibobic in the same family as cipro & more pain meds. then sent me on my way. So.....out of it & sick the next day, yellow eyes, dark urine & could not even put together what had happened to me! Went to VGH the following day & what the so experienced Dr. Pulfrey diagnosed as a tummy ache was acute Hepatitis on just one Cipro! Yes, it can happen. Today is March the 10th & my liver enzines are still not back to normal & neither am I! So sad this is the only hospital we have on the north shore!
Would love to send all their staff to VGH for training! What a different world it is!!!
PS. To Lionsgate Hospital . Please do not send me anymore letters for donations to your hospital because you will never see another cent from me unless you clean up your act big time!!!!!!

Mistakes non stop... Argue that I need an xray, since movement exrememly painful and it did not make sense had then check... Took 3rd check to catch mistake.. Caught 2 medication mistakes...argued but after double or triple checks found out the made mistake again and again... Even had them argue that I had a bowel movement today (nurse signed off) but I was constipated for 6 days. Went in to emergency with extreme pain after back fusion... 4 weeks earlier, couldn't figure it out so shot me up with morpheme so I could move and go home to suffer for 7 days before calling 911.. Spend 24 days in hospital whom mistakes are normal and all I can say is do not go there nor have surgery there... A 3rd world hospital would be better.. Go across the bridge to St Paul's even if life threatening as -Unbelievable better experiences there.

Awful experience. The doctors were very rude and dismissive

Two hours with a dry IV line. No response from nursing staff. Second IV machine not working. No new machine provided. Lab samples thrown in the garbage. Sent home with lab containers but no requisition. Wish there was an alternative to LGH Emergency Services. I regret spending a full day here with no improvement, no resolution, no help.

if you want to live and it is a serious emergency, you may want to choose Vancouver general.
