I've almost died twice due to the indifference , lack of knowledge and sadism of the surgeons and nursing staff at this dump. If you value your health, try VGH, St. Paul's, Mt. St. Joseph's or RCH. I refuse to go there, regardless of emergency. To be honest, if it was a heart attack, I'd rather die than have the ambulance take me there. I am NOT kidding...that is how disgusting this place is. Recently, an ambulance DID take me there (previous trip, they took me to St. Paul's per my request) so I called a cab and went to VGH. Any self respecting medical professional would not work at this awful gulag. We know, personally and socially, some docs and quite a few nurses. They unfortunately agree with my scathing comments. I refer to this hospital as 'the Dying Place' ..... caveat emptor.

I waited for 5$ hours which I don't care too much about it was new years, but I was in the emergency for ongoing pain, about 8 months and the doctor had the audacity to ask why I was there & they only treat patients with extreme life threatening issues. I have been to family doctors, everywhere and this is what he said to me. Extremely disprespectf

I had my knee replaced in September and i was worried because of a couple of reviews, but i found the staff to be conscientious and very helpful. I was in a four person ward and the nurses worked very hard running back and forth. I think they should hire more, but even with that they were as efficient and caring as they could be.

PRIVATE PAYERS BE AWARE:
- OBs and Anesthesiologist are not paid by hospital so they are worried about not getting paid. They will over charge since they were not paid in full in the past and if you intend to pay in full, it will be a lot of money.
- Services were withheld from me by the anesthesiologist at the time (I will not mention his name though I remember) and not only did we need the cash up front (which I do not carry when in labor), but it was a negotiation... We were told it would be one amount and then he said a higher amount, my dad told him that that was all we had based on what we were told. He asked if it was in the form of cash or not. My dad said it was a cheque and then he accepted.
I feel for the professionals who ought to get paid fairly for their services and Richmond Hospital should help ensure that but I do not appreciate being taken by surprise in the middle of intense labor to pay money up front before the professional will even enter my room and administer services. I also do not appreciate the feeling of being unfairly charged.
I sincerely hope things will change for the benefit of everyone - the hospital's reputation/business, practicing professionals and patients.

This hospital is trash. It's old and dated. The doctors and nurses are all frustrated. So was I. We need a new one Richmond, it's not like the city doesn't have the money!

I honestly believe that my husband would still be alive if he hadn't been transferred from VGH to Richmond Hospital. He had a number of strokes and was definitely disabled by them, but he was making gains every day at VGH.
At Richmond a nurse "couldn't find" a bedpan "anywhere on the floor" for him to use and made him wear diapers from there on out (less work for the staff). The port into his stomach was accidentally dislodged from his internal organs and when it was replaced, it was by a surgeon that did it without ANY anesthesia. People don't treat their pets that badly. If you ever have a choice of hospital in the lower mainland, DO NOT GO HERE!

Can't comment on value, since we don't pay for health care services. The staff are, for the most part, helpful. There are always those who go out of their way and do a stellar job. There are also those, who, in any industry, should be working elsewhere if dealing with the public is too much trouble. Cleanliness - it has never been the same since Housekeeping was taken out of the HEU.
