Ratings for McMaster Children's Hospital
The hospital is very dirty. When we had our baby there blood was all over the floors and the ceiling and on the lamps. They put the new diaper on the dirty floor and then picked it up and put it on my baby. The cleaning lady came into the room and I told her the sink is plugged up and its all bubbling. The cleaning lady took a dirty rag cleaned the dirty sink and then went and cleaned the whole room with the same rag. Even the computer and the keyboard. I think my baby gotten something from the hospital and broke out in rashes. I made 10 different visits to McMaster, Sick Kids hospital and few specialists and they have not did any tests that I wanted. His condition is getting worse and I feel very helpless after 10 months. The doctors are very limited and complacent in their knowledge guessing all the time without isolating different things by different tests. They just want to give him vaccines, steroids and more drugs. This is all without giving the baby any tests. The level of knowledge is very primitive I don't know where they get these so called experts. I don't know any profession where you can be wrong most of the time and still keep your job. If there was a 10 year old girl there as a doctor and if I asked her to do the tests I wanted it would be much better than these incompetent doctors. It is very scary that they don't have much knowledge.

It's always as if you've being rushed in and out. Had 2 deliveries there and you barely see a nurse unless they are given you medication or they have trainee's to teach !!

Some staff (on of the nurse at south desk!!!) are not welcoming and even rude! When I asked for TV's remote control, she told me they dont have many, because People steal it (well I thought maybe some personnel do it, since all parents I see around only care about their kids pain, like myself!!). Then when my daughter moved (she was not supposed to according to doctor's order) I called her for help because my daughter was in so much pain from the injury and I didnt know what to do, she came and right away opened her pants and said "she is just wet!!! Thats why she is crying" like as a mother I cant differentiate a wet diaper crying from the one caused by severe pain! She alao shared her medical opinion without the real doctor seeing my daughter saying"her cat scan is ok. She is perfectly fine" well later the doctor came and said he is afraid my daughter's clavical bone might have broken. This is not the only story. I had a very similar one with a doctor with my other daughter. She also treated us like we came to emergency for fun. After urine test and simole exemnatiin she sent us home while my daughter still had high fever which was in fourth day. We came hoke.and two days later they called us there was actually infection in urinary system but her urine test didnt show, it was seen in the culture a few days later and she called me to tell its very serious! I am sick if coming to this hospital and each time feeling like I sneaked into a fice star hotel without paying. I want to tell the staff from here: "I am not inmlove with your hospital, I would never like to come here and bother you if I had a choice" I want to mention there are really nice people as well and my words are going to those who made the experience so bitter for us! We had another nurse and doctor they were really nice.

McMaster is the worst hospital in the world!!!!!' They do everything against the book. They accused my brother and his girlfriend of abusing their baby and said that they lite the babies head on fire!!!!!!! They have not taken care of the baby at all. She hasn't been bathed since she's been in there for about 6 days, her leg was caught in the bar and she cried for 2 and a half hours and no nurse came in. A guy with his baby there helped her. And they said its for the best interest of the kid when they are neglecting the baby there as well. They haven't even done all te rift tests before making accusations. I am 80% sure she has an allergy to either shampoo or detergent and I think that's why she's breaking out which they think is abuse. They haven't done allergy tests. And the baby jas developed rashes all over her leg and a bruise on her head while there!!! Yet there still telling the mom she will never see her kid again. I have never seen a young mom so responsible before. She loves that kid to death doesn't allow smoking or even fighting around her baby! McMaster can ruin your life even when they dot have any facts. We are getting a lawyer and after all this the doctoral staff will be sued for neglect of the baby and making pre mature accusations without appropriate tests!!!!!! I will never ever ever take my kid there!

Over the summer I had went through double jaw surgery. The staff that looked over me were absolutely amazing... They made me stay calm and were very nice and helpful. Even in the operating room before I was put to sleep I felt so calm and under good hands. The nurses were always happy to help me. Never had a rude nurse once. Overall I had a good experience there, but could be different for others.

This hospital is treading on a disaster waiting to happen! Whether its the non fucntional elevators that cause patients, including emergency staff and hospital personnel, waiting up to 20 minutes, but there are broken items everywhere and the staff and VERY overworked and understaffed... just waiting for the day they make the news... the food they serve is a joke and is not healthy by any standard.. they are constsantly out of supplies.. what a sham!

Tell me, how do you go into a hospital to have a baby, which should be one of the happiest days of your life, and be sent home with flesh eating disease. Ended up of life support. This hospital has gone down
