I have just come home from laparascopic gallbadder day surgery. The skills and service were excellent. I would recommend this hospital for those who need this procedure. I had surgery at 8:30 am and had a sleep at home and now at close to 11 PM have finished some high fibre cereal, a slice of toast, plain tomato soup eaten cold, and a cup of coffee. I hope to go to extra strength tylenol tomorrow, which I take for arthritis. Since about 1 pm today I have also carefully walked in my tall townhouse, up and down about 20 flights of stairs, slowly and carefully. I also a, burping freely to get rid of gas. I would like to thank surgeon Dr. winckel, anesthetist Dr. Reid, nurse Alex and others I cannot name. Now to try to lose some weight as I am over 200 pounds, and am in my later 50s.

Absolutely terrible experience here. I went to the QCH emergency room with a requisition for a CT scan from an ER doctor in Kemptville. I was taken in almost right away with suspected compression of a nerve in my back. I was told I needed to be reassessed by a doctor then I would be sent for a CT scan. Dr. Sara Hostland was that doctor. She came in, asked me a few questions, felt my legs, moved them around, then left the room. After waiting over an hour, I asked about the CT scan, and was told by the nurse that the doctor "cancelled it". Dr. Hostland was of course no where to be found, and after multiple requests to speak to her and over 30 minutes of waiting, I left the hospital with no answers, yet still in severe back and leg pain, with a numb foot, and hardly able to walk. Terrible hospital, terrible doctor. Avoid them like the plague.

Very caring and attentive ER nurses and doctors! I am usually hesitant to seek medical attention due to anxiety, but this experience has made me more open to seeking help :)

Emergency staff was rude and unprofessional. After being admitted eventually, the staff on my floor was professional. If I ever feel I am having another heart attack I will insist to go to another hospital. Waiting too long in ER to be seen by doctor. Could have died. I reported this to the Director of patient services. I was brought in by ambulance and begged the admin staff to expedite me to get assistance but they ignored me. Waited so long in ER that I fainted in the wheelchair I was sitting in. Woke up in the morning and begged to be seen and that worked. I was eventually transferred to the Heart Institute for heart surgery and returned to the Queensway. The care after my surgery was A1.

I almost died during an appendectomy due to the fact they failed to give me fluids. I was in ICU because of it. I was jabbed with a needle three separate times by an inept nurse.
I spent three hours in pain without meds and then almost 8 hours without a bed during the pain of the appendicitis. There were numerous other complications.
I would recommend not going to this hospital.

Very grouchy and sour staff. Of the 6 staff members I encountered in Emergency, only 1 was pleasant and polite. Made a difficult experience even worse.
