Two operations - both became infected. The first required 4 operations to clean the and repair the incision. Between them I was on daily iv antibiotics for more than 20 months. This resulted in c-difficile.

Every time I need to go to emergency I have always been treated with the utmost respect. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend the Queensway hospital.

Excellent emergency treatment for recent accident causing a couple of fractures, compound dislocation, concussion and multiple scrapes & contusions. Just extremely efficient running the tests and calling on specialists to get me patched up. I was simply amazed at the kindly care I was given from all of the staff I came in contact with. From my perspective, the gold standard!! follow up notification of my incident with family doctor was very
quick . Great job everyone!!

I had 4 surgeries there this past year and 4 ER visits and many outpatient visits. With some small exceptions on the ER visits I was very happy with the way I was treated. Staff are knowledgeable and friendly and caring. I would recommend this hospital. Also this hospital practices better cleaning and hygiene than others I have visited in the area.

I had 3 experiences with this hospital before they finally admitted me in critical state (3 ambulance visits in 3 days). This ER room must be the worst run in Canada. The nurses are arrogant and seemingly untrained. I spent 8 weeks in hospital (not the QUeensway) after I was finally admitted. When I spoke with the CEO about my concerns (3 months after release from hospital) his comment was pleasant but telling "If you want financial compensation take it thru the courts"... An elderly neighbour was brought to the QCH ER who sent her home with a broken hip and obviously infected leg. Three days later home care sent her back to the hospital in ambulance. She lay in the hall for 4 hours and when she told hall nurse she had to use the bathroom the nurse said it was not possible and this elderly woman (with Bladder Cancer) sat in her urine soaked diaper until she was admitted to hospital 2 hours later... Sad state of affairs. In my case the CEO admitted to Coding Errors but they wouldn't have affected the outcome of my illness.... Would you go back to a hospital like this? Not me?

I find a lot of the nurses there need a change of venue. or even better career. I was in there about 4 times from passing out and hitting my head hard against a tub and furniture. The doctor (resident) did the right thing and ordered a CT scan because I am on blood thinners...but no one bothered paying attention to my low blood pressure....grrrr... I couldnt believe it... the monitor alarm would sound..and they'd just walk up and reset it. WELL GUESS WHAT GUYS AND GALS...YOU MESSED UP. I FOLLOWED UP WITH MY CARDIOLOGIST....AND FORCED AN URGENT APPOINTMENT... I HAD "LOW BLOOD PRESSURE" and HE ADJUSTED MY MEDICATIONS! I haven't passed out since. Can you imagine... each time I went to your hospital with a head injury and you sent me home...not picking up on that...SAD and SCARY at the same time. Will i go again...YES if i need to ONLY because you are the closest hospital.
My advice is DO YOUR JOB and STOP sitting there and gossiping alarms are there for a reason.. ps: what should you do when a patient's monitor shows "asystole" OH and by the way... I also had injury to my right eye. Your staff didn't pick up on that either. I had to chase up my eye doctor's backup service....

Horribly rude emergency staff. Young girls sitting around gossiping....and making no effort to go out of their way for anyone. Even heard "they're not MY patient " afew times. I spent 6 hours waiting for a diagnosis and was yelled at when I asked one question. Even the head nurse had to tune the nurses up once to get up and be helpful. My goodness. I the first to stand up and say I great ful for our Canadian healthcare system. But some of these people need to take their bitterness elsewhere and seek a career change!

Personnel were all friendly and caring. Nursing staff in orthopaedic recovery did not direct or ensure ankle exercises or deep breathing exercises were carried out at any time, this to prevent blood clotting. After 11pm noise from staff /computer room like party time. This may be training or supervisory issue.
